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.
