In this explanation of the word
myopic I get stuck by this sentence:
In terms of pronunciation: it's a tomato/tomahto word: pronounce it "my-OP-ick" or "my-OH-pick," although that short o sound is preferred.
Then what is a tomato word? I have searched everywhere but found no such a phrase. I thought may be because the o is pronounced the same as the o in tomato? But it seems really like a phrase.
