  • The mouthfeel is really in the tongue-tapping ts and the p and the n. The sag doesn't contribute. And for sure you have to pronounce it the second way. I wonder if there's an IPA keyboard pack you can download?

  • I think I agree but am wondering what the exact nature of its mouthfeel is. My source seems to be indicating sʌˌdʒɪtəˈpoʊtəntwhile I would think it would be ˌsædʒɪˈtɪpətənt—kind of like "Sagit" in Sagittarius + "ipotent" in omnipotent


    not to be doctrinaire, given that in the entire English-speaking world, it's probably been spoken aloud only a smattering of times in the past hundred years. also, who the heck cares. I almost want to delete this comment now but I spent way too long piecing together those IPA symbols
