Oh gosh!i am really was a longgggg day! I should have slept by now but this question is bugging me and i couldn't really sleep.
How much do "Pronunciations" matter in a person's life? Something came up today and i suddenly recalled a bigggg argument between 2 stubborn human beings...i dont definitely remember the exact identities though....Yes..these guys had a huge fight. It started with the word proNUNciation which is usually misunderstood and mis-pronounced as proNOUNciation. The two brilliant faces never came to a conclusion on this topic but i always found proNUNtiation to be more accurate. It was just as a matter of opinion....not a very strong belief or a highly charged argument. The reason i want to clarify this is, few personalities are very conscious with the way they pronounce words and rather more sensitive about how others do the same. Few know the exact origin and the dictionary explanation with additional grammatical details and the most others judge people through there own style of pronouncing. I personally dont have a right to declare them as the wrong ones...however, i could neither be specific about them being right.
I see it in this way...A phonetic transcription of a given word is obviously customized but the manner in which one can actually utter a word could be different. It is according to his or her understanding more than anything else like a customized agreement. Words can be understood to your knowledge inspite of the standard correction or acceptability.
Is this more of a schooling influence, environmental effect and the surrounding phenomenon rather than a simple individual understanding? May teacher said that and i have been following her for years....thats it! She made the actual wrong impression and you never ever gave it a thought again. You never felt the need to rethink on a separate track...may be. You cannot ignore this inevitable fact of getting influenced by anybody whom you tend to follow. Some olden days when your friend said it this way and you liked the phonetic sound that the word delivered...doesn't matter if it was still loved it! Could this be a good reason to consider?
I dont know the answer...atleast i felt better and relaxed after i tried putting my question into some shape and format....lemme sleep now...i can see a longggg tomorrow already....GN :)

I am really stressed out. So many things happened in a short period...i have been really busy all these days. The only entertaining part was...our dance. Now its done, we won the first was amazing...i was literally exploited past few days but was happy about the evening time that we spent on our practice. I had a heavy work load in use to rise and pass by and the only thing i use to remember was ..DANCE...the moment i slept all these days was the most relaxing point in the entire day and night journey but the way i use to close my eyes was never with a silent was always some or the other step in my dance that ran through my body, my uneasy feet, my moving hands, my fumbling facial expression which never came out as something resembling to sleep with eyes half the way open, nose breathing heavily and voice pressed low but still mumbling the songs, rhythm and the tunes :)
Its all done though! Today is a little lonely...without the need to remember all steps that we choreographed with all the possible energy that six different souls could have :( No more attempts to try things that were out of my reach for the very first time...No tempers that went way off their limits due to funny reasons...nothing...
I am not had an awesome end result but the way i am missing everybody today makes me feel stressed out and lonely. I dont see academics going anywhere day was productive..i worked with the same pace but it was stressful not waiting for the pleasant evening to come. I will go home...cook, relax, eat, watch TV and yes i have groceries too....Its not very encouraging though....i want to go back to square one from where the 6 blazing satrangis started off....I WISH!
