Subject: 1.30. Pronounciation of Font Names
  
  Below each of the following font names, a suggested English
  pronounciation is given.  This information was collected from a
  (relatively) long discussion on comp.fonts.  If you disagree, or have
  other suggestions, please let me know.
  
  Arnold Boecklin
  ===============
  
  "Ar" as in car, "nold" as in "old" with an "n" on the front.  "Boeck"
  is tricker.  The "oe" is actually an umlaut "o" in German, and the
  closest sound to most English speakers is an "er".  So try "Berklin" if
  you want to come close to the original.  Otherwise, just say "Boklin",
  with a long o, like in "boat".
  
  Benguiat
  ========
  
  Ben-Gat.  This according to an ITC brochure.
  
  Courier
  =======
  
  I would pronounce Courier not like Jim Courier, but the French way:
  Ku-rie, where "Ku" is pronounced like "coo", only short, and "rie" is
  pronounced "ree-eh".
  
  Didot
  =====
  
  Stressed at the last syllable. "Dee-DOOH" (not nasal).
  
  Fette Fraktur
  =============
  
  "Fet" as in "get" with a "te" that rhymes with "way".  "Frak" rhymes
  with "mock", and "tur" with "tour".
  
  Fenice
  ======
  
  Feh-nee'-chey
  
  Garamond
  ========
  
  "Gara-": Use a french "r" instead of an english one. Both "a"s are
  pronounced like the "u" in the word "up". "-mond": the last syllable is
  stressed, and you don't pronounce the "n" and "d", but the whole "ond"
  is a nasal "o". Hold your nose closed and say "Ooh", then you get the
  right sound.  The "ant" in "Avant-Garde" is very similar to this sound,
  it is a nasal situated between "a" and "o".
  
  Helvetica
  =========
  
  Hell-veh'-ti-ka
  
  Koch Roman
  ==========
  
  Pronounced like scottish `Loch', but with K instead of L.
  
  LaTeX
  =====
  
  Lamport lists lah'-tech, lah-tech', lay'-tech and lay'-tecks as valid
  on p.4.  Last I talked to him he'd settled into lay'-tech which has
  always been my pronunciation as well. Somewhere, I heard that LL does
  explicitly rule out L.A.-tech, but he's from northern California which
  explains a lot.
  
  Mos Eisley
  ==========
  
  moss eyes-lee
  
  Novarese
  ========
  
  No-vahr-ay'-zay
  
  Palatino
  ========
  
  pa-la-TEEN-oh
  
  Peignot
  =======
  
  There's some contention here, suggested pronouncations:
  
  pay-nyoh'
  
  "P" like "P" in `Post", "ei" like "a" in "fan", "gn" like "n" in "noon"
  plus "y" in "yes", "ot" - long, closed "o" (I don't know English
  examples), stressed.
  
  "P" like "P" in `Post", "ei" like "a" in "many", "gn" like "n" in
  "noon" plus "y" in "yes", "ot" - long, closed "o" (I don't know English
  examples), stressed.
  
  Sabon
  =====
  
  Sah-bon'
  
  TeX
  ===
  
  Rhymes with Blech, (as in "Blech, that tasted awfull!")
  
  Veljovic
  ========
  
  Vel'-yo-vitch
  
  Zapf
  ====
  
  Like "tsapf".  The "a" is pronounced like a short version of the well
  known tongue-depresser vowel "aaahhh".  Perhaps a better English analogy
  would be the "o" in "hop" or "hops".
  
Subject: 1.31. What is it?
  
  This section identifies common names for several glyphs.
  
  The "@" Character
  =================
  
  The "at" sign or "commercial at" sign.  In the past, it has also meant
  "each" or "each at".  Consider the following example supplied by Clive
  Burton:
  
                                           Unit         Extended
          Qnty Unit   Item                 Price        Price
          12   reams  bond paper           @ 5.50       66.00
  
  Here' "@" means each at or simply each.
  
  PostScript calls this the "at" sign.
  
  The "#" Character
  =================
  
  This mark has several common names: 'hash', 'hatch', 'pound sign', and
  'octothorp' among them.  The name "pound sign" is an Americanism that
  causes some confusion in countries that use the pound for currency.
  
  It was also noted that the # is a medieval abbreviation for Latin
  "numerus" - it is a cursive 'n' with a horizontal slash through it,
  much modified and abstracted.
  
  One possible derivation of the name "octothorp" was provided by Charles
  Bigelow:
  
       ... old English "thorp" meant 'hamlet' or 'village' (I'm not sure
       of the difference, except maybe hamlet is smaller, as its apparent
       diminutive suffix would suggest), and is derived from a much older
       Indo-European word *treb- for 'dwelling', which turns out to mean
       'beam' or 'timber' in Latin "trabs", winding up as "trave" in
       Anglo-Latin, like "architrave" - the beam resting on a column, or
       "trab-" as in "trabecula" - a small supporting beam or bar. As
       Voltaire said, etymology is a science in which the vowels count
       for nothing and the consonants for very little.
  
       So, maybe "octothorp" means "8-beams", which makes a kind of sense
       if we take the 8 projections to be the thorps, or trabs or traves.
       Though it's only a "quadrathorp" if we think that the beams
       connect.
  
  Another explanation has it that the octothorp is a "thorp" surrounded
  by eight cultivated fields.
  
  Both of these etymologies received some skepticism amongst the readers
  who commented on comp.fonts.
  
  PostScript calls this the "numbersign".
