I queried Capitol Kiwi
You know a NZer working on the hill?


Given the subject of the dicussion, dr. bill was merely avoiding a form whose nearer root might take us off on another route:

capital: from caput, head
capitol: from Capitolium, temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline hill

Sorry about the typo, CK. Do you still get upset about the difficulty of judging the Sexual Olympics?

Dear CK: I never challeged you to compete, I challenged you to devise a method of judging. How would you decide which participant had the most meritorious performance?

Is there anyplace I can go on the net to listen to these variations of the pronunciation of TU as TJU (which I can't imagine since T is a breathe-out sound and J is a breathe-in sound) and CHEW
