I'm too lazy to remember which story to pick the quote out, but one of my favorite Vlad moments from Steven Brust is when Our Hero is having some sort of discussion with Aliera e'Kieron—is it Yendi? as I'm pretty sure she was still Heir—and the line goes something like, "Blah blah blah," Aliera hissed. Yes, I'm aware there are no sibilants in that sentence, but she still hissed it. One of those quiet barbs at an unknown writer, we would guess. Or else a golf-slap to Terri Windling, his editor, who might actually have scrawled on the draft, "There are no sibilants in that sentence". Well, okay, no, she wouldn't have. She just would have written, "Sibilants?!" At any rate, as we have sibilants for S, what is our word for the F sound? I was chuckling at the old Vlad moment while thinking about a bit of dialogue that required a proper, "Ffffffffuck!" and for some odd reason, the question occurred to me. Can't imagine why. It's also silly to me that I don't already know this word. What the ffffff― ... ... er, right.
