AW: [Histonet] Coplin

From:"Gudrun Lang"

Inspired from the Friday-Fun mails I must admit, that I say "Kuevette" to
the coplin jar. (but my mother tongue is German)

I think Coplin was a person. There exist various jar-models. One is named
after Coplin and one after Hellendahl.
And I wouldn't be surprised if he was a French and his name is pronounced
this way (like Gobelin the carpet).

Betreff: [Histonet] Coplin

Two nonsensical questions for late Friday night, concerning coplin jars. We
got into a discussion about it this week, but I forgot to get onto Histonet
Friday morning in time for the Friday trivia (though the CSI thread was

1. How do most people say "coplin"? 
- Cope lynn
- Cop lynn

We have people pronouncing it differently. Training difference? Difference
in dialect? You say toe-may-toe, I say toe-mah-toe?

Which brought us to question #2:

2. Who (maybe what) is Coplin/coplin? What nationality? That might make a
difference in how the name should be pronounced. I've been looking for the
origin/inventor/whatever, and I can't find anything.

Thanks in advance.
