With Aplogies to both Bill Maher and John MacGregor:

New Rules for pronouncing Latin or any foreign words

	1. Be the first person to say it. Even if wrong this gives 
you Priority. Others will follow

	2. Speak LOUDLY. 	Make sure everyone hears you.

	3. Speak with Conviction. Do not hesitate or stumble.

	In most cases people will adapt and those who object will 
look like whiners.

	Of course it helps if you do pronounce all the letters and in 
the correct order. It is hard to accommodate an alternate 
pronunciation that does not complete the basics of the English 

		And don't hold me to any of this.		Best
