LXer: Pronunciation of Software Names

Published at LXer:

I'm a big fan of languages; I see tremendous value in different human expression. Even with a language like English, a language I dream in, I'm told by my close friends I still pronounce things quite badly at times, often to hilarious effect. Blatant errors aside, language and its commonality can be crucial for community development; this is especially true for communities dealing with specific topics. Back in the day, in most of the Western world, scholars and scientists used Latin to communicate as an intellectual community.
