How to say ‘medieval’

15 September 2010


From the Revd Dr Paul Monk

Sir, — The Revd Gillean Craig may think the pronunciation of “medieval” with a “glottal stop” is “bizarre” (TV review, 10 Septem­ber), but that is the pronunciation recommended by The Oxford English Dictionary and all the internet dictionaries I can find.

Perhaps your reviewer is guilty of that of which he complains: of being a passionate advocate who cannot get his facts right.
