I could look it up, but this is more entertaining.

I have never actually heard the word "redacted" spoken. I've only seen it in print, and only started seeing it about a year ago. And assumed its meaning from context. How is it said? "Re-dacted"? "Red-acted"? "Red-acted" would make sense, as it could mean you acted on subversive (i.e., red) text. If it's "re-dacted", is it possible to dact something? Is something written something you've dacted?

Isn't language fun.
