New York Times Tries To Teach Us How To Pronounce - Conceptual - And Blows The Concept!

April 2, 2006

The Talk


Conceptual / (kn sep chon) / adj. / of conception or ideas. ' The operative word behind much new design, "conceptual" describes a window that looks like a sculpture, a tile pattern that looks like a painting, or a sculpture that is a cast of the inside of a house, and signals the ever-blurrier line between art and design.

Obviously... (kn sep chon) is the correct pronunciation of conception - and NOT conceptual....

UPDATE - It is now April 9th in New York - and they still have not corrected this.
