in reply to How do you pronounce variable names?

Maybe I'm weirder than the rest of these monks, but I admit that when I'm reading or writing code, I end up "pronouncing" the code in my head. Just like when I'm typing plain old text. (No, my lips don't move when I read. ;) )

I use "dollar", "at" and "hash". I'm not sure why the two syllable option is ok for scalars, and not hashes, but that's just what's in my head.

"for space paren at foo paren space brace space space print dollar underscore semicolon space space brace return return"

is basically what runs through my head when I type out:

for (@foo) { print $_; }
