You Say Potato....

In mathematics, and more importantly (or at least pertinent, to me) there is a word:


Say that word out loud. No really, go ahead! I'll wait

Tried it out? How did you pronounce it?

Did you pronounce it two-pull? Or more tuhple... like tupperware?

I'm very curious what your natural inclination is. I've always pronounced a "toople" sound. That's all I've ever heard until my Database System professor pronounces it a bit more like "Tadpole"
