How Do You Spell MC?

The spelling of the abbreviation "mc" can seem puzzling to those unfamiliar with English phonetics. In IPA transcription, it is represented as /ˈɛm si/ (em-si), with the "e" and "m" sounds being pronounced separately before the "si" sound. The reason for this unusual spelling is that "mc" is short for "mac", which traditionally means "son of" in Scottish and Irish names. The abbreviation has become a common prefix in names that have been anglicized, such as McDonald, McNally, and McLeod.
