  • Here’s another ghost word attached to an American Heritage Dictionary biography. (I should make a separate list for these.) Disregarding its obvious etymology, I’m trying to decide whether to pronounce it like the phrase “their publican”, or with a voiceless th, a long u, and pronounced second e (a la therapeutic): “θaer-uh-pyoo-bluh-kuhn”.
