The question of pronunciation arose early and in a surprising way.  It had
always seemed obvious to me that Stata was pronounced, well, Stata,
But does that rhyme with baiter, barter, or batter?  Or can we
pronounce Stata differently, depending on where we are from (or where
we live)?

(If that was deliberately ambiguous, then ignore this question.)

Jeremy  "rhyme with baiter" Miles
