agree  urielf: AFAIK, the pronounciation is TATZRIF (not TATZREF).

  -> Thanks Uriel and Tamara. You might be right about the pronunciation. I'm not sure since I never actually heard anybody say it, although I have seen it written both with and without the yod.

agree  John Kinory: Perfect. And it's tatzrEf (cf. Sapir dico). I don't use 'pazel' (you know me!), but tatzref is a bit obscure
