There are several words, phrases and terms in instrument making that bother me. I don't know why, it's probably mostly irrational, but it makes me completely pissy to hear them or read them. The fIrst one and the one I absolutely loathe is when someone says: "That model is a good build." Or "My build is coming along well." I hate it when say people that, using build that way. It makes me so furious I get red in the face and my brain stops working so much so that I can't even think about which part of grammar it is and how messed up it is. Although I am assured by certified grammarians that is is proper to use build that way. ARRGGGGGG! We hates it. Second- Garland, I hate the word garland when applied to violin rib assemblies. It makes me crazy like I want to close my ears. What the hell! Is this freaking wreath on your door or Judy Garland? NOOOOOO. NOOOOO. It is violin ribs. We hates garland applied to violin rib assemblies. Third- del Gesu pronunciations. Fine call it what ever you want, just don't correct others about it. Don't act all high mighty and think your Italian does not stink because you say smooth Del Yaaahh suuuuu and not a hard G sound as in del Jaysuuu Tomatoes Potatoes, don't think you're hot shiet because you correct others about Del Potatoes and Del Tomatos. Get over yourself. Forth Eetalian and EyeTalian - For the love of God Edith! It's EEE talian with a soft I. Not EYE talian with a hard I. Only Archie Bunker says it that way. Fifth Gramil is not so bad, but its useless word. I don't like the sound of it. So don't say it in front of me. Sixth Using latin names for wood in instances and situations when the common name will do just fine. Just stop, cease and desist. "Ever eat a Pine tree? Many parts are edible." See Euell Gibbons could eat a damn tree without telling you it's damn latin name. I suggest you do the same. That is, eat a pine tree to keep your mouth full. Seventh I'm thinking on it...........something will piss me off soon enough. Thank for allowing me to come forth with my neurosis and vent to my peers. It is so much better cheaper than therapy. Good evening. Hold the phone...#7 Corpus, I hate the word 'corpus' it just sounds murderous, just say 'body', it wont kill you to say 'violin body'.
