The other day I wrote to my newspaper objecting the use of
upper-case O, as in O-mega, when reporting on the o-micron
A little to my surprise, they published my letter this morning. They did
add "in my opinion" to what I wrote.
There was a short segment of the morning TV show "Good Morning
Britain" dealing with the pronunciation of "omicron". There is not a
studio audience but when one of the two presenters said that they
were going to get information from a expert in Greek there was
laughter in the studio, presumably from the studio crew. The name of
the expert was given as "Stavros Flatley".
A friend of mine was once on the sort of TV chat show where they bring
in a truckload of age pensioners to form the studio audience. When he
made a joke the audience didn't get it, but you could hear laughter from
