Dear TV journalists and weather guys:

1) Its pronounced “appl-a-chin.” Not “appl-ay-chin”. I know, I grew up there.

2) While there is an actual word “flautist,” those with a sense of dignity and common sense would never use it. Even “flutists” find the word offensive, as evidenced here.   When you use this term, you sound like a pretentious chucklehead.

That is all. Carry on.
