Can we as a literate society productively
consider "spelling pronunciation" as a legitimate dialect of English?
Seems to me that English, with all its borrowings - spelling and all -
could get truly ridiculous if all "spelling pronunciations" became accepted
as a legitimate dialect. I think of Monty Python's "Holy Grail" where the
French commander calls out to the "English /kuhnigits/."
