No need to begin at the beginning merely for the sake of pronunciation.
It's comprehension that matters, not the way you pronounce the words.
You say po-taa-toe and I say po-tah-toe.... The whole debate about
modern v. Ersamian pronunciation is a distraction, in my estimation
simply because it major's on something quite minor. After all, and
again, it's comprehension that matters.
