Re: st: The origin of the word Stata?
I say puh-tey-toh, you say puh-tey-tuh
I say tuh-mey-toh, you say tuh-mah-toh
Sorry, it had to be said ;-)
However, saying Stata rhymes with data creates the same problem -
regional variations of data include: dey-tuh, dat-uh, dah-tuh, and
yes, the New England dey-tur.
But if it wasn't for variation, why would we need Stata?
