  1. He’s all yours, TraceAm.

    “(pronounced “thirty-aught-six” or “thirty-oh-six”)”

    I’m speculating here (guessing), but I believe that “aught” was originally “naught” (zero), but lost the “N” to an Irish accent, and later became widely accepted without the first letter.

    I was a member of local union “six-aught-eight” (608) which was filled with Irishmen (“Westies” — Irish mob from west side of Manhattan) who had thick Irish accents. African and West Indies blacks still often use “naught” for zero, but they pronounce the “N”.

    Well I thought that was interesting.
