    pair-a-dime

    From dictionary.com:

    par·a·digm (pr-dm, -dm) (oops, didn't even notice the little pictures were gone)

    n.

    1) One that serves as a pattern or model.

    2) A set or list of all the inflectional forms of a word or of one of its grammatical categories: the paradigm of an irregular verb.

    3) A set of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.

    I've always just assumed the "g" was silent. I guess I was right. [​IMG]

    Believe it or not, a colleague of mine (who is an attorney, though he doesn't practice law) actually thought it was "Pair-Ahh-Dig-Ummm."
    I was dumbfounded, to say the least. [​IMG]

    I went to some audio shop 2 months ago and said "do you sell any para-dig-ems?".
    he immediately corrected me, then raised the prices [​IMG]
