Subject: RE: BS: a new punctuation mark
I'm never too sure how tilde is pronounced. And in any case if you ever say it, no one knows what you mean. I used to have an email address with a tilde in it, and every time I gave it to anyone to write down, I had to explain, when I got to that bit. "Oh, you mean a squiggle!" they'd say. Which I actually think is a better name for it.
