QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Trump and Friend

T.D., a Chicago reader, writes:
“Just how should we pronounce ‘bestiality’?”
The first syllable rhymes with  BEST, not BEEST.
Why do you ask?
And is this a good time for a reminder that  “err” rhymes with “fur”?
And “dour” rhymes with “your”?
And “sheik” rhymes with “cake”?
Remembering all these pronunciations is not everyone’s forte.
Which rhymes with “sort.”
