Relating to Each Other
How we communicate has an effect on how we relate to each other. God created us each unique and sometimes that means pronouncing words differently from each other. Some common mispronounced words are Often, Nuclear and Realtor. Sometimes people say the word often and include the “T”. Often has a silent “T”. The silent “T” is in other words too for example: listen. Nuclear is pronounced like Nucleus except with an “R” at the end instead of an “S”. Realtor is said Reel tur.
Kids make up their own versions as they try out new words. Our children have a good time with Spaghetti.
No matter how you pronounce your words, speak kindly. Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
