ZACHIAS & FFGHOST:
Yes, it is sad the JWs are generally an uneducated bunch with some being painfully so! If a brother is rather uneducated and has an upcoming talk, he should make a point of researching the ten dollar words with regard to their pronunciation so he doesn’t sound like a dope.
I remember more than one instance of some uneducated guy mispronouncing a word..and other fools using the same mispronunciation (either because they were unaware OR they were embarrassed or intimidated into doing likewise)..When I commented, I made SURE I pronounced it the correct way and I did not care what anybody thought.. I certainly was not going to deliberately pronounce something wrong just so some idiot could feel better about himself. That would just be promoting more ignorance!
Nobody ever had the nerve to say anything to me about it.
