How do you say...DEPHLEGMATOR

Postby Harry » Sun Apr 21, 2013 9:04 pm

How to pronounce the word "dephlegmator". Many people get it wrong so please don't be offended. The "g" is silent...






HTH

Slainte!

That is a weird looking word and to ask an Okie to read it let alone pronounce it is a huge mistake. :roflmao:

Yup. I'm guilty of using the g too. I'm about ready to just do what ac does. PC & RC. Product condenser and reflux condenser.

I suppose the abbreviated form should be dephlegm instead if dephleg as well.

Gotta love the wonderful world of linguistics.

I think I'm the only one who calls it a dephlegm

But, but, but... the Reflux Condenser must condense all of the vapours, hence the top vent.

The Dephlegmator can be a partial condenser and is therefore different.

Have to agree with Harry.

Thank you for that squidd. That's a great clarification of the terminology.

Since the world is so trendy and new words/ spelling get created every day, So can I just write deflamator ... OR would that be too redneck of me?
After all who don't use" ho" now?http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Ho
What about dawg?http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/dawg
Sure there are more practical examples....
The "flam" insinuates flame which is much cooler that "phleg" which insinuates snot. definitely not something I want involved my spirits.
The term was probably created by some chemical geek who wanted to disgust everyone involved as a prank, not to mention confuse as many people as possible. Not a thing to be admired.
The way it is spelled it makes me think of a device used to process nasal excretions.

B- rant-token out....

Expectorator?

Both names sounds like doppelbocks! (It's the ator suffix...)

I have pronounced the g so many times its hard to say it any other way. As far as the dephlagmater goes if you can attain 100% reflux then I would still call it a reflux condenser.

Archaic term kinda like "retort" or "alembic". Reflux condenser is more straightforward lol

De-phlegm-ator/de flem ator
That which removes "phlegm" kinda like mucinex aka guaifenesin.
It's a decongestant for your still.
