View Full Version : What's the proper way to read titles with deliberate strikeouts?

As in the Discworld novel FaustEric, or Magic Kingdom for SaleSOLD! by Terry Brooks. Do you read the whole title aloud? Would you look for the Discworld novel under "F" or "E"?

I would file it under E for Eric, but I prounounce it "Faust (schwipp) Eric" with an appropriate horizontal hand-slashing motion at the "schwipp."

I'd start to say the crossed-out bit and then quickly say the next part, as if covering up a verbal slip.

I'd say "for sale - whoops! - make that sold."
