E. Hunter _ TODAY we shall study the much '·!· used and much abused word bi ography (bi-og-ra-fi). The tr.ouble with this word centers around the innocent little' I. It should be pronounced exactly like the I in bicycle The,accent is on the secon'd syllable. The dictionary gives no other pronunciation. In its companion word, autobiography, the sound of the I is not changed when the prefix is added. A point to be remembered in any study of words is that it is well to take no one's word regarding them. The beat result that could come from a daily feature such as this would be to have everyone grow so skeptical that there would be a rush for the library and the unabridged dictionaries. ° Bits About 'em .Mr. and Mrs. W.
