By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

The contributions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, though the final decision as regards publication will be taken by the editors.
