Meaning of HANZOUND TM in English


n. The sound system at Hanszen College, Rice University. adj. The presentation of a production using the Hanszen sound system. [combination of "Hanszen" College and "sound". The capitalized "Z" serves to separate the two constituent parts of the word. Also, only "-en" was clipped off of "Hanszen". Also, "s" and "z" are similar in sound (differ only in voicing) which allows for the particular type of blending and clipping in this new word.] Context and source: "The Hanszen Movies Committee presents A Christmas Story in HansZound TM." (from a flyer posted at Hanszen College)
