I'm American - not from New England, though much of my family is, and my
accent is a bit muddled from living with them but in Virginia and North
Carolina - and I've always said CHRES-tomanci. Am I seriously the only one
besides this reviewer?
That makes me wonder: those of you who read Harry Potter, how do you
pronounce the Hogwarts school subject "Arithmancy"? I put the emphasis on
the first syllable again; I'm curious whether anyone does it differently.
