A Word...

A note to my instructor last week:

"axely" is not the same as "actually"
"cylical" is not the same as "cyclical"
"docker" is not the same as "doctored"

I'm not picky about pronunciation simply because I majored in English. I'm picky about pronunciation because it can totally change the meaning of a sentence. And that makes a big difference when you're trying to learn concepts that are brand-spanking new.

So please may I have an instructor who was not born and raised in Utah?
