Article : English Pronunciation




For all lovers of writing and the verse - recently stumbled upon this poem that I thought would make a great read for all writers still learning to play around with words (learning doesn't ever stop, does it?). Titled English Pronunciation by G. Nolst Trenité, the almost 600  word piece is as interesting to read aloud as it is to articulate with that voice in your head!

From the source:

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud.
