Linguistic Note on Cototient
The word cototient derives from:
- the prefix co- denoting complement
- the word totient, which is a variant term for the Euler $\phi$ function.
The word totient is pronounced to rhyme with quotient, that is: toe-shyent or toe-shent, according to taste.
The same applies to its various relatives: nontotient, cototient, noncototient, and so on.
