comment How is the spelling of a hyphenated word read?
@RegDwigнt, Because /dæʃ/ and /ˈhaɪ.fən/ is pure-greek to me. I don't assume the average user would know how to pronounce /tɛkst/ or even /huːs/. This question is not of "do I pronounce car as 'automobile' or 'korr'", but more of "according to description, is the letter A pronounced as /eɪnt/ or /ɑː/ by the average british/american—when they are telling people how to spell a word containing that letter?".

@RegDwigнt, I'm trying to write out sounds without using IPA... That aside, is it common practice to pronounce a "hyphen" as DASH?

comment How does one correctly use “q.v.”?
Is cf accepted usage here? Eg. "Discussion of the Magi begins in the previous commentary (c.f.)."

comment How does one correctly use “q.v.”?
@Alenanno, Shouldn't q.v. be used to reference articles instead of cf., since cf. is ambiguous as it could mean "compare/contrast" instead of "refer"?
