Hey my church wants me to collect a list of english words that we commonly mispronounce in our church liturgy and try to correct it with the deacons and priests. I am no english phd, so I was wondering if I could hear from you guys on words you commonly hear mispronounced in your church and how they should be pronounced. I will start with what I have so far:
Remember this only pertains to english responses. A lot of the issues come from the natural way of saying the same word in arabic.
Amen: said "Ah-meen" should be "Ah-men" or "Ey-men"
Beneficent: said "Beh-neh-fish-ent" should be "Beh-nefisent"
Cherubim: said "Cher-eb-eem" should be "Cher-eb-ihm"
Seraphim: said "Ser-af-eem" should be "Ser-af-ihm"
Glorify: said "Glo-ree-fy" should be "Glo-rih-fy"
Lord have: said "Lord-ih-hav" should be "Lord-hav"
