Everybody (almost) has it wrong


There are hundreds of words we pronounce
incorrectly in Davening, learning etc.

Harav Hagaon R. Moishe Feinstein zt"l* defends 
the masses who mispronounce words in קריאת שמע.
R. Moishe claims that a corrupt language which is spoken
by many turns into a language of its own. It's not לשון הקדש
but תפילה וקריאת שמע may be done in any language.

(There are other Poskim who are not as lenient)

a few examples:
דור הפלגה
It is not Dor Haflogah but Dor Hapalogoh 

Haflagah = distance . וסת הפלגה, The
time (distance) between the 1st and 2nd וסת
A boat leaving shore (distancing) מפליג בספינה
Hapalogoh = dividing, breaking up, halving 

פכים קטנים-
small jugs (plural) The correct pronunciation is
Pakim (with a kaf) not Pachim (with a chaf)
unlike פחים with a ח (Ches) (cans tin)

 משנה ברורה
The correct pronunciation is Mishna Verurah
and not Berurah the same as שפה ברורה is 
not pronounced Berurah but Verurah.
