You say “sfigmo” I say “spigmom”

Well, the website I first consulted gave the pronunciation as “spig-mom-an-om-eter”, but both Merriam Webster and the
Free Dictionary give this pronunciation: “sfig-mo-ma-no-me-ter”. I’ll realign and go with the latter two, because sfigmo sounds more elite than spigmom (which sounds a bit like pigmom).

Whichever you choose, try saying it 5 times fast.

Or we could just call the whole thing off, and say “pressure cuff”
