"Yes, confusion by the structure of the sentence which I chose of the idea
created a reading that was unclear."

Let me rephrase that.

"I wrote the sentence poorly."

I meant to say that she pronounced "annals" with [ej] as the first syllable,
instead of the more standard vowel as in "flannel" "channel" or "annual."
