Summary:   - -----------

INITIAL QUERY:

A LOCAL COMPANY ASKED US TO EVALUATE A NUMBER OF POTENTIAL PRODUCT NAMES
FOR USE INTERNATIONALLY. THE EVALUATION WAS TO FOCUS ON ASSOCIATIONS CAUSED
BY SPEECH SOUNDS (PSYCO-PHONETICS, PSYCHO-LINGUISTICS) AND POSSIBLY ON
ETYMOLOGY.

UNFORTUNATELY OUR PROJECT NEVER GOT STARTED BECAUSE OF PURELY PRACTICAL
REASONS. WE REGRET THIS SINCE WE HAD ALREADY GOTTEN SO MANY USEFUL
REFERENCES. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SHOWED INTEREST IN OUR PROJECT!
