  1. Title: Some more examples
    Author: Aryeh Lebowitz ,

    People have been emailing me additional examples:

    וייראו העם את ה'

    First in ויושע. We say 'וייראו העם את ד

    Most people say va-yir-oo. That would mean "They saw HaShem". Correct pronunciation is vayee-ri-oo. (L'choira one would have to correct the baal korei on that one...)

     

    לישיני עפר

    In Shemone Esrei we say לישיני עפר

    Most people say lish-nei. That would mean "for the two dirts". Correct pronunciation is lee-shay-nay.

     

    בעל גבורות

    Right after that we say מי כמוך בעל גבורות.

    Most people say bal gevuros. That would mean "Hashem is NOT strong"!! Correct pronunciation is baa-al gevuros.

    מחיה מתים אתה רב להושיע

    From rabbi Elchonan Adler: mechayei meisim Ata.... Rav lehoshia NOT mechayei meisim... Ata rav lehoshia

    אשירה לה' כי גמל עלי

    The word "גמל" should not be said with a double קמץ (that would mean “because there is a camel on me”) but with a קמץ and a פתח.
