Continuing from that same Wikipedia article:
"The name phonon comes from the Greek word φωνή (phonē), which translates as sound or voice because long-wavelength phonons give rise to sound."
Maybe it's just because I'm old enough to remember earlier usage, but to me "phonon" immediately signals something related to sound. According to the OED, the original coinage (1932) was: J. Frenkel, Wave Mech. vi. 267: It is possible to associate the acoustical waves with certain particles which we shall call ‘phonons’, and to replace the study of the heat oscillations forming these waves by the study of the motion of the corresponding ‘phonons’.
Closer to on-topic. Is "TizMee" to be pronounced tease me or 'tis me?
