Therefore if I pronouce Data as "day-ta" then that is the correct way to spell it "dar-ta" is therefore incorrect.
Vitamins therefore starts with "Vit" is in "sit" not as in "kite"
and Yoghurt starts with "Yo" as in "cog" not as in "so"
Incidently as I was doing my "research" for this blog I came across the origin of the word vitamin:-
"[Alteration of vitamine : Latin vīta, life; see gwei- in Indo-European roots + amine (so called because they were originally thought to be amines).] "
I believe this sucessfully illustrates my point. I was pronoucing the word correctly. Vita in Italian/Latin is with "iy" sound not "eye" sound.
side bar 1 - it was much easier to have this conversation in oral form that in literal form - I got my point (and my lighthearted tone) across so my easier.
side bar 2 - the correct pronounciation of scone still confuses me.. is it to rhyme with "Stone" or "Gone".... jury still out on that one ;)
