It does if you speak English.
I was being facetious؟
Facetious - interesting word, has all the vowels in order (if you add ly to the end). Just like abstemious. But we can do without that.
It is a shame that not all the posters show their location. I have worked in IT in 14 different countries. Pronunciation depends both on location and native language. Char tends to be CHAR(coal) in the UK and CAR(buncle) in the US, including variations like varchar and nchar. The Dutch and Germans have different spin on CH as it has a more gutteral sound. In French it is soft. # is hash in the UK, pound in the US (and Canada) , but sometimes gate. In IT 'industry' it just takes too long to say 'exclamation mark' so it gets abbreved to bang (and sometimes shriek). Occasionally, something happens to define a word or symbol, so C# is now definitively See Sharp. It comes as a shock when you hear new versions.
