I wonder how I shall pronounce biblatex and biber. Shall I pronounce bi as in bite or bi as in bit?(although in case of biber I prefer to say bi as in bite because it reminds me of that canadian guy). I ask because I have no one to talk about Latex and if there is s/he is not expert in Latex and I am solely dependent to this forum and books and package documentations.

I hope this way of editing meets the requirements of tex.se question template.

    "Could you please not vote to this question?" Why? :S I mean, I have a feeling this question will be closed as it's very, very broad, flirting with off-topicality however narrowed down and arguably opinion-based, but why do you not want people to vote on your own question :S :S

    I think you're better off asking this in TeX - LaTeX Chat, as there may be many interpretations rather than official pronunciations (see the above related links as an example).

    these particular packages all have to do with bibliographies, and in such a situation, the logical pronunciation is the same as for "biblio" -- rhymes with "bit". you have my sympathy for having to guess about something you have only read from a written source. i keep finding words that i'm quite familiar with on paper have pronunciations different from what i guessed ... more than 50 years ago. so don't be afraid to ask.
