When you say a word in a foreign language and ask a person who speaks that language "am I saying that right" and they answer "yes" they don't actually mean yes, they mean: "No, but I don't want to go through the rigamarole of you repeating the word over and over again to try to correct a minor pronunciation difference that you can't even hear, but that is blatantly obvious to me every time you say it yet I can't explain or illustrate because of how specific it is"

This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least. Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
