Hello there Pali forum, nice to meet you.
I've noticed as I've listened to a variety of talks/chanting ect by various monks, I couldn't help but notice that there seems to be a lot of variety in the ways they pronounce it, even among monks of the same nationality and tradition. I'm curious as to if there is a certain sort of Pali taught to monastics, or if it is a case of meaning and understanding being stressed over pronunciation. I'm also aware of the fact that the pronunciation in some cases is simplified to make it more comfortable for speakers of languages which don't have corresponding sounds, Thai Pali chanting for example.
I'm not asking for pronunciation instructions, I'm just generally curious about how Pali is handled as a whole in the Buddhist community, if at all. I realize this isn't -that- relevant to Dhamma, but I take an interest in linguistics and would find it interesting to know. I'm sort of assuming they just don't care since it really doesn't make a difference to their practice, but I don't want to make that assumption.
