Triple has a short "i" sound.
Every-other "-ple" sounds like "tuh-ple"
1863, word-forming element abstracted from quintuple, etc.
A dictionary agrees:
> Origin and Etymology of -tuple
But then the pronunciation of quadruple can go either way. Although the "oo" is listed first, so is probably more common, I guess any of them would be considered OK:
> \ kwin-ˈtü-pəl , -ˈtyü- , -ˈtə- ; ˈkwin-tə- \
Greek and Latin have been mixed up enough over the years that it should be acceptable to use either pronunciation regardless of the true origin of the word.
Blew my mind to discover that “arity” is a real word.
When I got a job doing Python a month in, my co-worker pronounced it "too-ple" and I quickly adopted that pronunciation.
tupple → /tʌp(ə)l/
ruble, super, ruby, Sumer (as in Sumerian)
rubble, supper, rubber, summer
But TIL that "too-ple" is more common [98 pts vs 43 pts], apparently.
Anyway, didn't there use to be a web app that would search youtube for words and play the part of videos where that word was said?
As in: That group of 5 was a real ‘tuple.
