I recently had a potentially-fun* idea for a presentation that I could perhaps give at the next Practical Cartography Day: how to pronounce cartographic words and names. Given how few of us there are, and how much we rely on written communication, there are some words that we might see and type out and understand, but which we aren't 100% certain how to say aloud, because we rarely hear them spoken. As an example, I've heard "Mollweide" pronounced about four different ways over the years, and I'm still not 100% certain how to say Erwin Raisz's last name.
I'd like to enlist the help of all of you out there to build a little guide. What are some words/names that you're uncertain about? Can you help give the correct pronunciation for the ones that other people find troublesome?
If there's enough interest and material, I'll pull something together and put it online, and maybe pitch it as a presentation at the next Practical Cartography Day.
