Pronunciation (2018)

We have a problem with the connection between spoken and written language. Spoken language is unlimited without any restrictions, it is constantly evolving and being renewed. Different languages merge together and new words and pronunciations are born. It is a natural cycle of life where things dissapear and vanish. Written communication is much more static.

There is a select group of people who decide a word will be added to the dictionary or not. There are endless rules how to spell words, how to use grammar and how to use interpunction. It is the conservatist of language. But what if these rules are so difficult to understand, that it’s not communicating what it should? This publication sets out the problem of how communication is treated and how we unsuccesfully tend to make connections between spoken and written language.
