As a bit of an i18n geek... · Thus writes James Clark, who’s actually one of the world’s supreme i18n geeks. I18n is short for internationalization; see, there are 18 letters between the ‘i’ and the ‘n’. And you can call me T1m. Anyhow, his essay is fascinating if you care about languages or names, and contains the following remarkable sentence: “For example, another of my employees has a name that sounds like the second syllable of the word ‘apple’, but with the ‘l’ changed to a ‘n’, and pronounced in an emphatic (falling) tone.” I hope that brightens up your Friday.
