I thank you h, for your reply,
May you code on, and never die(),
To voice my name, (i won't ask why),
Think "kh", which you can try.

Amongst the things that can be had,
There are those things that taste too bad,
And in disgust, but not too mad,
We say "(y)uuuchhhh!", but not too sad.

That "uch" does not rhyme with duck,
Because then it would be spelled like "yuck",
Nor does it sound like such,
As then it would not add too much.

Of that "ch", and this is key,
Think of "ich", the German "me",
The easiest example, i can see,
(If there is easier, what can it be?)

Now pronounce that "a" a doctor's "ah",
Of course that makes the syllable "cha",
Now say it twice, but like (the Indian) "tawa",
Surprisingly like saying "tada".

That is the ultimate syllable has stress,
But on the end as you may guess,
That simple "m", you must impress,
And after that you can digress.

    What a splendid conversation
    Where differences rate no mention
    Gentile maybe is old hat
    But it's none the worse for that

    No axe to grind or ire to raise
    What a refreshing change of pace
    A waste of cycles? May be to some
    But then, perhaps, they're just glumb

    To raise no hackles, nor raucous laugh
    No feeding the trolls "on our behalf"
    You grew a smile upon my face
    I welcome you to this place

    May your demeanour rub off on me
    To step outside of me and see
    the bigger picture; all around
    To smile, where once I frowned

    Who gives a monkey's if I misspell
    If the question's less Perl; more SQL
    Vive la différence; live and let live
    T'is no obligation; but a pleasure to give

    Pure distraction; no purpose in mind
    Your posts are a pleasure of the purest kind.
    For the simple smile you brought to my day
    I hope "Thank you" is all I need say

      misspell/SQL

      1. se-quell
      2. Mispeakwell
      3. ess queue ell

      3 didn't even come up in mind. Between 1 and 2, i like 2. It is a "rhymization" based on faulty "pronounciation." :^P

        And therein lies a story.

        I was working at (not for) IBM UK back in the late '80s working with a small team developing a project that used SQL (es-que-el), when we had a new team leader brought in over our heads. He'd been seconded in from abroad, and a different environment. In our first get-to-know-you meeting as a group, our previous de-facto leader was walking the new boss through the project so far when he was interrupted by the question:

        "Do you mean 'sequal'?".

        "No. SQL ...".

        "But it's pronounced 'see-qual'!".

        "Not around here it's not!".

        "Well, it is everywhere else, so I think that "we" should endeavour to fall in line.".

        "But ...".

        "We *will* endeavour to fall in line.".

        From that point on, all the original members adopted the pronunciation: "SKWAL". Short, staccato and diminutive.

        It made for some interesting conversations with the (UK-based) customers saying es-que-el; the boss saying "see-qual" and us slightly choking each time :)

      While your discussion, free and pure,
      nice poetry, it is for sure,
      my PerlMonks::parser, very sadly,
      makes my head throb very badly.

      Hmm, seems i should really have listened to my teachers and read more of those classics...

      Don't use '#ff0000':
      use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
      All colors subject to change without notice.
        Be you pronounced "Ka-vik",
        as in perhaps, "havoc",
        Purge mind of things phallic
        Or, more cortex malloc
        Sorry about that third line; slim phonetic pickings.
