in thread Perl in Fall

Somewhere during my young and innocent BASIC days, annoyed at the lengthy (even more so in German) "dollar sign", I picked up the habit of pronouncing $ as "string". I have never been able to shake it since. :)

Makeshifts last the longest.

    I have not developed via habit a wonderful shortcut for dollar sign (or just dollar). I think if I'm going to give it the verbal chop, I'll try training myself to use Buck. You know, buck as in dollar. If I can knock it to one syllable, I'll get more ! for my speaking $.
