Either or Either - That is the Question
Date: January 7, 2016
I realize in various dialects and sections of America, the word "either" has at least two different pronunciations. Sometimes it is pronounced with a long "e,” and sometimes with a long “i.” Which pronunciation is preferred when singing with choral groups? When song leading for congregational singing, is the same pronunciation desired, or does that vary depending on which part of America the congregation is? For example, in a place where the word is spoken with a long “e,” should we gently teach the congregation to sing with a long “i” or maybe vice versa.
Thanks in advance for your help.
