    Forty-three percent. I’d have a hard time getting them all right through reading memorization with the flipping back and forth to the pronunciation guide and the second guessing myself after years of wrong-headed practice. So I’ll try to listen to an audio version of the Book of Mormon. I’ve picked up correct pronunciation of other things via audiobook. Worth a try, anyway.

    Aw, :(, sad day. That was not easy and I proved it.

    Paanchi is pronounced pā-ăn´kī, which was not one of the choices. The quiz said it was pā-ăn´kē.
