In my book, the pronounciation of those cXXXr is the least of
their problems.  They make the code hard to understand anyway.
I strongly recommend limiting oneself to cXr and cXXr, and preferring
`nth` and `nthcdr` or defining new types with `cl-defstruct` so you can
use proper names for the relevant fields.

cXXXr is Lisp's equivalent to writing assembly code IMO (tho without
the speed benefit).
