I say, Ja­son’s right

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Out Of The Box -

from Coral, Croy­don North I READ all the let­ters sent into the Guide each week and if there was a let­ter of the year award, I’d vote for Ja­son of Don­caster (Guide, Dec 24) be­cause I too am sick of hear­ing com­plaints al­most ev­ery week about in­cor­rect pro­nun­ci­a­tion. Well done, Ja­son, you summed the is­sue up per­fectly. We should not make the mis­take of equat­ing spo­ken lan­guage with its writ­ten coun­ter­part. And you are so right in say­ing that those who in­sist on polic­ing pro­nun­ci­a­tion are more an­noy­ing than those who mis­pro­nounce.
