Both, says the Oxford BBC Guide to Pronunciation, a secret guide that has helped generations of BBC newsreaders pronounce difficult words and odd-sounding names, has been made public for the first time in the UK and US.

The training manual offers advice on words such as “schedule”, “controversy” and “kilo-metre”, as well as troublesome modern names including “Al-Qaeda” and “JK Rowling”. It’s an updated version of the tome used by the BBC since the days when radio presenters wore dinner jackets.

It includes the correct way to pronounce foreign names, such as “Sven-Goran Eriksson”, the former England manager, (sven yoer-an ay-rik-son) as well as “Faria Alam”, his former lover, (fuh-ree-uh uh-lam). Rowling, the Harry Potter author, is pronounced as in “rowing” a boat and not as in having a “row” with those who say differently.

It buries the hatchet about long-lived arguments — such as whether to say “shed-yool” or “sked-yool” for “schedule”. Shed-yool is a more English way of pronouncing it, says the guide, though neither is wrong. And is it kil-uh-mee-tuhr or kil-om-uh-tuhr? The first way is the more traditional, says the guide, but the second version is also acceptable.

More than 16,000 words, phrases and difficult-sounding names and places are included in the £14.99 (approx. Rs 1,300) book. The BBC has a Pronunciation Unit with a database of 200,000 words, names and phrases that may leave some newsreaders and presenters tongue-tied.

SOME REALITIES OF LIFE

Check out Some Realites of Life.

“U love someone
U marry someone else.
The one u marry becomes ur wife or husband.
And the one u loved becomes the password of ur mail id”

—————

There’s only one perfect child in the world & every mother has it.
There’s only one perfect wife in the world & every neighbour has it.

—————

If someone says u r ugly, its ok, if someone says u r stupid, its ok,
If someone says u r genius slap him as tight as you can n say there is a
limit of kidding n u r now crossing the limit.

—————

Three dreams of a man:
To be as handsome as his mother thinks.
To be as rich as his child believes.
To have as many women as his wife suspects…

—————

Husband & wife are like liver and kidney. Husband is liver & wife kidney.
If liver fails, kidney fails. If kidney fails, liver manages with other
kidney.

—————

Generation Next Motto: Na hum shaadi karenge, na apne bachchon ko karne
denge.

—————

What’s the diff between Dava &d Daru?
Dava is like girlfriend, that comes with expiry date and
Daru is like wife, Jitni purani hogi utna sir chad ke bolegi.

—————

Wife ko Begum kyon kehte hain?
Kyonki shaadi ke baad saare gum to husband ke hisse mein aate hain or wife
Be-Gum ho jaat hai.

A Cup Of Coffee

There are times when we think we have no time for some important things in life. That is because we are not able to organize our life and our priorities. Hope this article will do that for us. Enjoy reading it.

A professor stood before his Philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar.

He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.

Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full.

The students responded with an unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space
between the sand.

The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

“The golf balls are the important things – your God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions – things that if
everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.

“The sand is everything else–the small stuff.

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.

“The same goes for life. “If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Play with your children.

“Take time to get medical checkups.

“Take your partner out to dinner.

“There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

“Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter.

“Set your priorities.

“The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked.

“It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,there’s always room for a cup of coffee with a friend.”
