Oddly enough, I've always adored the lowercase "e" It just looks so cheerful!

My first thought was e.e. cummings too...there is a new biography of him out that looks really good!

I'm reading Paul Gaugin's Tahiti journals right now and am in love with so many of the words from it. "Noa Noa" is a current favorite!

I love all the ones I never heard pronounced. You wouldn't believe how many there are and how I've pronounced them wrong over the years because I've never heard them.

reciprocity (I said re-sip-re-okity instead of res-ipros-ity
cadaver (I said Kad-a-vere instead of Ka-dar-ver)
banal (I pronounced it bay-nal instead of b-narl)
Osama (I pronounced it OZ-ma instead of O-sah-ma)

It's amazing to hear them pronounced now I have the CI and know what I've been saying wrong over the years.

Cadaver! What a great word.

I have a real hard time with names. People, places... if they aren't simple chances are I'm pronouncing it wrong. Even after someone has said it to me a few times.
