Strange concept, and one I hadn’t thought of until today.
A coworkers last name is Iandiorio. We had some visitors to the office, so when she stated her name as we were making introductions, I was only half paying attention and realized that for a second I didn’t know whether she was saying her last name or spelling it. It dawned on me that I dont think I’ve ever heard a word that, when spoken, sounds a lot like it would when spelled out.
Maybe I’m just crazy - but has anyone else ever come across any other words like that?
