On pronunciat­ion


Wendy Petrie, who reads the weather on ZB, should be told the harbour is the Waitemata not the WaitemataR. She surely wouldn’t pronounce Matamata as Matarmatar? Greg Hawkins, Pakuranga. Would somebody please tell the Prime Minister a “pitcher” is either a vessel for holding liquids or a player who delivers the ball, especially in baseball.

Susan Oakley, Howick.
