My first blog post! Being B•hū•UR…
I thought about the name, and made the label, website, and now… Oh wow, it is so hard to write B•hū•UR correctly. lol
First of all… how do you call that • ?
A center dot!!! ?????
lol no, that was how I called it… but the official name of • is INTERPUNCT
OK so we got • out of the way… lol but… how do we type •? The answer is Option 8 ! on Apple.
then ū… lol. This I had to bother my website design teacher (can you believe I tried to learn coding CSS, HTML, etc?..) Mr. Williams. He really helped me to make my B•hū•UR exist in the digital world. lol
That horizontal bar on top of u is called Macron. not Macaron, it is a Macron.
A macron (/ˈmækrɒn, ˈmeɪ-/) is a diacritical mark: it is a straight bar (¯) placed above a letter, usually a vowel. Its name derives from Greek μακρόν (makrón), meaning ‘long’, since it was originally used to mark long or heavy syllables in Greco-Roman metrics. It now more often marks a long vowel. In the International Phonetic Alphabet, the macron is used to indicate a mid-tone; the sign for a long vowel is instead a modified triangular colon
A macron can be type on a mac with option a then u or any other letter you want to put the macron over. so in this case option a then u.if I ever need to spell my B•hū•UR it will sound like this…
Capital B, interpunct, small h macron small u interpunct, capital U, capital R …
OMG already not so easy to B.hū•UR… but I love it. lol
