The acoustics of structures

Before beginning the paper proper, perhaps a word or so will not be out of place on the pronunciation of the title, whether it is “Acoostics ” or “Acowstics.” As a matter of fact, both styles seem to be correct, one dictionary giving one form and one another. The “New Oxford” gives both. Also I understand that “Acoostics” is preferred in Scotland. We may, therefore, safely assume that it is a matter of individual choice. A G Huntley
