That made me think of the English language and how difficult it is to master. I realize that English is a conglomerate of many languages and in order to master it, you really should be versed in at least a few other languages such as Latin, German, Hebrew, and French.
For example, many English words look like they would follow the textbook rules of pronunciation, but don't. My husband's aunt and mother's names look like they would have the same endings. Janice and Clarice. All while growing up, her family and friends called my mother-in-law "Clar - is" following the same pattern as "Jan - is" with the accent on the first syllable. Little did they know that the beautiful name the grandma read in a book actually came from France and was pronounced "Clar - ees" with the accent on the second syllable.
Later, when my mother-in-law left the tiny farming community and moved with her husband to the metropolis of Los Angeles, people she met kept calling her "Clar-ees." Because she was so shy, she just let them. She was also very shy about reading out loud in public meetings. Throughout her life, she was never confident in her pronunciation skills.
Yes, let this be a lesson to all. Be nice to people who mispronounce words. They probably learned by just reading.
Hurray for Music and Musicians!
