Right, I've given the game a number of attempts and the pronunciations seem to be acceptable. I had a few problems with homophones, but once I discovered that there was a definition under the hints section, I avoided this irritation.

Being here in the States, the pronunciations are not what I'm used to hearing. When I get rolling, I sometimes rush to type in the answer, not remembering to click on the clues because I've been previously correct on hearing what word they're saying.

I heard "defying" and quickly entered it correctly, only to be wrong because they were saying "define".

While it's my fault for racing through the words, to those of us over here... or at least me, those words sound nothing alike. (Unless I need to be fitted for a Miracle Ear.) Thus I was flabbergasted that my streak of correctly spelling the words had ended. So, I blamed it on the pronunciation. (How could I be at fault? :D )

I definitely prefer the revised lyrics.

I hope that it does get to Brittain, if it hasn't already. I live in NZ, but I have relatives that I'll beg to watch it, and then I'll ask them every question I possibly can. Mwuahahahaha :twisted:
