Steven Page and Ed Robertson were long time friends and schoolmates in Canada. When they were bored at a Bob Dylan concert, they came up with crazy names for singing groups, one of which was Barenaked Ladies . They were influenced by Peter Gabriel's sound and by Corky and the Juice Pigs' onstage banter and humor. One of their fun songs is an alphabet like no other. Not only are they strange and wonderful words, but most are intentionally picked because they are pronounced nothing like the letter they represent.

Aisle (ahyl) pronounced like "I'll" in I'll have to stand in the aisle.

A walkway between or along sections of seats in a theater, church etc.
This is where many a man has gotten a lump in his throat when he sees his bride walking up the aisle. Sometimes when something is really funny you might see people rolling in the aisles convulsed in laughter--please refer to The Belly Laugh Gym.


Bdellium (dĕlˈē-əm) pronounced like "Oh a deli, yum!"

An aromatic gum resin similar to myrrh, produced by certain Asian and African shrubs or trees of the genus Commiphora and is still used as a binder in perfumes today. In the Bible a jewel variously interpreted as being a carbuncle (Gen. 2:12), a crystal (Num. 11:7), or a pearl (rabbinical interpretation)

Bdellum was an ingredient in the prescriptions of ancient physicians and used in sacred rites. When used in sacred rites it is steeped in wine to increase its fragrance.

Czar (zahr) to be technically correct it is pronounced (tsar) with the tongue barely catching the "t" before saying "sar"

Czar (also spelled as tsar) literally means an emperor or a male monarch. It was the imperial title of Russian rulers, who ruled Russia from 16th century until the Bolshevik revolution in 1917. It is derived from the Latin word Caesar that was the title of Roman emperors. Czar also means a person having great power. The Russian czars were the rulers of Russia, whose reign began with Ivan the Terrible and ended with Nicholas II. They ruled for nearly 350 years.


Djinn (jn)

(Islam) an invisible spirit mentioned in the Koran and believed by Muslims to inhabit the earth and influence mankind by appearing in the form of humans or animals

The story of Aladdin is from the Arab golden age as told in the Arabian Nights. Robin Williams as the Genie in Disney's Aladdin describes it like this:

Aladdin: You're a prisoner?
Genie: It's all part and parcel, the whole "genie gig":
[grows to a gigantic size]
Genie: PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS!
[shrinks down inside the lamp]
Genie: Itty-bitty living space!

Euphrates

The other "oil." Even in times of drought, Turkey has been blessed with a large amount of annual precipitation which neither Syria nor Iraq enjoy. Because the source of the Euphrates River is in Turkey, this country has control over the amount of water going into other countries like Iraq and Syria who depend on it for their water supply. Iraq is more than 70% desert and has virtually no other water supply source, other than infrequent annual rainfall.

The Tigris and Euphrates rivers are frequently mentioned in the Bible and have been the lifeblood of the entire region since time began. Legend has it that these two rivers, along with two others. Pishon and Gihon, nourished the biblical Garden of Eden.

Föhn pronounced (phone)

The Föhn is a dry wind that blows down the leeward slopes of mountains. It is one of the "ill winds" of legend and is known as the Chinook in the U.S. Rockies, the sharav in Israel, the mistral in France and where I live it is called the Santa Ana winds.

A Föhn can last less than an hour or for several days, and is reputed to cause headaches and make people act odder that usual with suicide and accident rates increasing by 10%. This is called "Föhnkrankheit" (Föhn-sickness)

Moist air flows up the windward side of a mountain and as it gains altitude the air pressure decreases, the temperature lowers, clouds form, and finally it rains. It reaches its lowest temperature as it goes over the top.

On the leeward side of the mountain the now dry wind drops and warms as it compresses because of the increasing air pressure, raising temperatures by as much as 30°C (54°F) in just hours.

So if you see anyone acting weird or in pain during one of these winds just say: Fohnkrankheit (phone-crank-height) instead of Gesundheit.

Gnarly pronounced (narly)

Traditionally something gnarled or gnarly is all twisted like the tree branches in the photo. In slang it is beyond extreme dangerous or difficult. For comedians, it can be sick or twisted humor or if it is a person, they are themselves a bit twisted or unusual in some way--often in a way that is admired. "He is one gnarly dude."

Hour pronounced (our)

Sixty minutes or 3600 seconds or 1/24th of a day. A sandard UTC hour sometimes includes a negative or positive leap second, and may therefore have a duration of 3599 or 3601seconds for adjustment purposes. Because the rotation of the earth causes "clock drift," a day may not end in 24 hours because of an added second. A second has been redefined several times--first on earth rotation and orbit, then orbit around the sun and now we get our second from 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom. Unfortunately tides, rotation and glacial rebound forces us to slow the atomic clock prompting the song "Does anybody really know what time it is?"

Irk pronounced (erk)

Synonyms: aggravate, annoy, bother, bug, burn (up), chafe, eat, exasperate, frost, gall, get, grate, gripe, hack (off), irritate, itch, fret, nettle, peeve, persecute, pique, put out, rasp, rile, ruffle, spite, vex

For fans of the TV series 24,season 8 features the IRK which stands for the Islamic Republic of Kamistan, a fictional country loosely based on Iran.

Jalapeno pronounced (hal ah PEH nyoh)

The jalapeno is named after the town Xalapa, Veracruz where the pepper was traditionally grown. It is known by several different names in Mexico, including cuaresmeños, huachinangos and chiles gordos. This popular chili pepper is used in many popular dishes including poppers, salsa, jelly, pico de gallo, and nachos and is often pickled. Jalapeños have 2,500 - 8,000 Scoville heat units which measures the amount of capsaicin present. Habanera peppers, on the other hand have a level of 200,000 and the Guinness champion, naga jolokia measures over a million SHU's.

Knicknack

A small trivial article or art piece usually intended for ornament or display on a shelf. Otherwise known as a bauble, bibelot, curio, curiosity, doodad, gaud, gewgaw (also geegaw), gimcrack, kickshaw, novelty, ornamental, tchotchke, trinket, bric-a-brac, gimcrackery, trinketry, trumpery, bagatelle, trifle; figurine, ornament; keepsake, memento, souvenir; conversation piece or collector's item.

A computer animated short film produced by Pixar, and directed by John Lasseter.

Llama

Llamas are members of the camelid family that originated on the central plains of North America but migrated to South America at the end of the last ice age. Llamas were domesticated from the Andean Highlands of Peru and are among the oldest domestic animals in the world. Primarily a beast of burden, they also provide native herdsmen with meat, fiber for clothing, hides for shelter and manure pellets for fuel.

Female llamas use spitting as their major method to maintain status within the herd and to fend off unwanted attentions from male llamas.

Mnemonic pronounced (nee monic)

Mnemosyne is the goddess of memory in Greek mythology and a mnemonic device, is any learning aid that helps you remember something. It could be as simple as a string around your finger or rosary beads or it can be a rhyme or an acronym or acrostic. An acronym to help remember the great lakes is HOMES. The letters stand for Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior. A well known spelling rhyme is "I before E except after C" and Every Good Boy Does Fine tells us the notes in a scale--EGBDF.

Ngomo pronounced (gomo)

Ngomo is a river in Africa, a village in the Congo, a Safari Lodge nearJohannesburg, and a Starfleet Admiral on Star Trek. It is also a common surname in Africa.

Ouija Board pronounced (wee jee)

The name "Ouija" is a registered trademark for Parker Brothers' William Fuld Talking Board Set. The name comes from the two words for yes in French and German, oui and ja. A talking board is a flat board marked with letters, numbers, and other symbols, supposedly used to communicate with spirits. It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood) or movable indicator to indicate the spirit's message by spelling it out on the board during a séance. The fingers of the séance participants are placed on the planchette, which then moves about the board to spell out messages. As a parlor game it could be fun but opening up your mind to dead or unknown "spirits" is a little like going to an unknown internet site and asking for a virus to come talk to your computer. Invite your family exorcist over before jumping in.

Pneumonia, Pterodactyl and Psychosis--Pterodactyl pronounced (tera DAK tul)

Classified as pterosaurs or "flying lizards," a Pterodactyl had a wingspan of anywhere between a few inches up to over 30 feet long as compared to the condor's 10 feet maximum wingspan. Pterodactyls are believed to have flown long distances using large wings with hollow bones and leather membranes which had extended air and blood circulation systems. Paleontologists classify Pterodactyls as flying reptiles and not dinosaurs. They existed from the late Triassic to the end of the Cretaceous Period and fossils have been found in America, Europe, Africa, and Australia.

Qat pronounced (kat)

Qat is a flowering evergreen plant native to tropical East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Qat contains the alkaloid called cathinone, an amphetamine-like stimulant which is said to cause excitement, loss of appetite and euphoria. In 1980 the World Health Organization classified qat as a drug of abuse that can produce mild to moderate psychological dependence.Soldiers high on qat fought our soldiers in Somalia and resulted in large losses of life.

"Capturing moments of eternity," someone once called the subtle tinkering with time that qat effects. After two years I no longer knew if life was good because of Yemen or because of qat. ~ Kevin Rushby

Rgyle actually Argyle pronounced (ar gile)

Argyle is a pattern which consists of diamond shaped blocks against a colored background, often with a diamond outline bisecting the solid ones . The argyle pattern first appeared in the County Argyll in 1500 on the socks of members of the Scottish Campbell Clan whose colors were green and white. By the 1700s, English knitters adapted the pattern to many other colors and other clothing such as sweaters and scarves. In the 1920s, argyle socks, which ran all the way up the calf, were very popular with men. In the 1980s, women sporting the preppy look brought back the argyle sock and made it their own. It must be back in style because I just saw three people wearing argyle sweaters in the recent movie "Life As We Know It."

Saar pronounced (sahr)

The Saar is a river in northeastern France and western Germany which flows through beautiful valleys in both countries and ends up in the Moselle River. On the borders of Alsace and Lorraine in the Vosges mountains, the Saar is born near Mont Donon, Vosges' highest peak.

The day after Thanksgiving November 23, 1944, General George Patton ordered the 90th Division, heroes of Normandy and his most decorated division, across the Saar without bridges to engage the dreaded Siegfried Line. After fighting an almost "Alamo" type engagement and losing their commander, they were able to hold off superior forces until reinforcements came.

Tsunami pronounced (sue nami)

A tsunami is a giant tidal wave or a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, usually an ocean, by an earthquake, volcanic eruption, landslide, meteorite impact or other mass movement.

On the night of July 9, 1958 an earthquake in the Alaska panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards of rock which plunged 3000 feet down into the waters of Gilbert Inlet generating a 1720 foot tsunami that swept down the entire length of Lituya Bay and into the Gulf of Alaska. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by this highest ever recorded tsunami.

Urn pronounced (ern)

An urn is an ornamental vase on a pedestal used for many purposes including holding cremation ashes. One of the most famous urns was confiscated from Louis XIV during the revolution and placed in the Lourve. By the Athenian sculptor Sosibos, the urn which depicts Apollo, Artemis and Hermes presiding over a procession of Bacchic dancers, inspired John Keats to write his classic "Ode to a Grecian Urn."

Vraisemblance pronounced (vry sawn blans)

From the 19th century French "true appearance" meaning the quality of seeming to be true or likely. M.C. Escher was a master at creating things that seemed true but were impossible. Stairs that went up and then went down, hands that were drawing themselves, and geometric forms that looked plausible but could not be built. Yogi Berra, famed Yankees manager coined many "truisms" that weren't. You have to go to other people's funerals or they won't come to yours, Half the lies they tell about me aren't true, Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

Wren, Wrinkly and Who pronounced (ren)

A wren is mostly found in the New World where it is one of the smallest birds with a joyous big voice and a downy plumage. It has short wings and poor night vision and vigorously territorial. A favorite of bird house keepers it is a member of the passerine suborder otherwise known as songbirds. Sir Christopher Wren, England's most famous architect of 51 churches including St. Paul's Cathedral had the respect of Newton and Pascal for his scientific work and at 37 married for the first time. this is an excerpt from a letter to his wife: I have sent your Watch at last & envy the felicity of it, that it should be soe near your side & soe often enjoy your Eye......but have a care for it, for I have put such a spell into it; that every Beating of the Balance will tell you 'tis the Pulse of my Heart, which labors as much to serve you and more trewly than the Watch; for the Watch I beleeve will sometimes lie, and sometimes be idle & unwilling...but as for me you may be confident I shall never.

Xi'an pronounced (zee ahn)

One of the oldest cities in China, it was a capitol city under many important dynasties. While it has had seven other names, it became Xi'an in the year 1369 CE at the time of the Ming Dynasty. The two Chinese characters "西安" in the name Xi'an literally mean "Western Peace." During the Qin Dynasty, the famous "Terracotta Army" was created by China's first Emperor and the figures, dating from 210 BC, were discovered in 1974 by some local farmers near Xi'an.

Yperite pronounced (ee pur ite)

A chemical warfare agent, commonly known as Mustard Gas, that severely irritates the skin, eyes, and lungs. It was used in World War I about 90 years ago mostly in a narrow strip of land in Belgium and France. Many of the yperite or Mustard Gas shells are still out there. While the Belgian Bomb Disposal Team works four hour shifts every day taking two truckloads of unexploded shells apart and destroying the chemicals, It is estimated that three Titanics worth of unexploded bombs still litter the fields of France and Belgium and are still as deadly as the day they were fired. Every year more than 30 people are killed by the unexploded bombs. Public opinion against the use of gas led to the Geneva Protocol and mustard gas has not been used in warfare until the Iran-Iraq war.

Zed pronounced (zed)

The last letter of the alphabet or "z" as in ZZ Top the rock band--famous for their long beards and sunglasses except for the one named Beard who only sports a mustache. Their hit "Sharp Dressed Man" is featured in a video below.

ZZ Top's the Charts but Ends the Alphabet

Hi GL, I chuckled at my original title in which I mistakenly separated barenaked. I wondered if HP would let it stay. Fortunately for me the band runs them together. I'm glad you like trivia, it was fun tracking all 26 of them down. Thank you for the fun comment. =:)

Rebekah you are too kind--it was fun and I have to admit I liked saying the words as I researched them. Ngomo was hard because I kept trying to say the n too.

The idea of vraisemblance as seeming true but not was my stretch, it was more fun than just seeming true because it is. Thank you for coming by--always a pleasure. =:)

Hi Audrey, I was amazed at some of the words and the trivia behind them. I finally understood what causes the hot winds in So Cal and what power Turkey wields over Iraq and Syria. It kept me out of the hubs for awhile and I promise to make up for the absence. Thank you for the gracious words and by all means stump your son while he still knows everything. =:)

Greetings M'Lady, how kind you are. I hope you had fun with their absurd alphabet and my trivia/picture accompaniment. I will put the video URL's here for you to follow--if you open up the first one in one window and reread the hub in the other window it will make more sense to you. The second is ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man"

I love BNL! I miss dramatic Mr. Page and his ballad-y songs, but the remaining four are holding their own. One of these days, I'm going to save enough money to go on Ships and Dips!!

They are the best live!! You never know what they are going to do with their songs. I have every album of their's on my iPhone!! HUGE fan!

I'm glad to find someone that loves them as well. Most of the time, people look at me with wrinkled faces, saying, "Barenaked who???"
