EFF-i cass-y.


ef-FIC-ass-y? (Vide recentia.)

The other day, I heard an even more gorgeously exotic verbal flower:


Our unlettered classes are so adorably sweet.

EffiCAXity... Such a 'cacacious' turn of the phrase, no? If I am permitted such a neologism.

I've always assumed "caricature" should be pronounced with a slight emphasis on the first syllable, but yesterday on YouTube I heard an English-speaking professor of a leading British university pronounce it with a distinct emphasis on the second syllable: "caRICature". Now I'm confused and don't know what it right!

Perhaps a "caricature" of an English Professor?
