comment Pronunciation of “parmesan”
@james My mother (and me until I left the nest) pronounced it "parm'eezeean" - somehow she wedged an extra "ee" sound before the final "an".

comment What verb describes the action of pricing just below a round number, eg $9.99

@SubmittedDenied Perhaps then "unigenitified" or "unigenitiated" and for a noun "unigenitian" (following the "an" ending of orphan)?
