metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: AW-DEE-OH-chaff

Etymology: AUDIO+CHAFF=AUDIOCHAFF.....AUDIO: of or relating to acoustic, mechanical, or electrical frequencies corresponding to normally audible sound waves; of, relating to, or utilizing recorded sound.....CHAFF: something comparatively worthless; Middle English chaf, from Old English ceaf; akin to Old High German cheva husk.
