I respectfully submit my replies to Jerry Offner's questions.


> And backed to those crowded angels--how exactly would one have written a
pronunciation guide that would engage the public?




> Are there prior examples of excellence?


Many, from the mid-sixteenth century to the present.


> What about next time?


I hope they get it right.


> And what about this time?


They didn't get it right. It could still be corrected.


> Do the comments offered so far encourage non-specialists to use
specialists next time or do they just further isolate all parties?


Communication is the first step; each person involved is responsible for his
or her reaction. Criticism and correction are essential ingredients of the
scientific method.


Best wishes for the new year,
