This recording, narrated by Abraham Lass, attempts to make clear the correct pronunciations of commonly mispronounced English words, ranging from "archetype" to "zenith." A complete list of the words included on the record can be found in the liner notes. Lass is the author of a number of books and recordings about the English language, including Dominando El Ingles: Mastery of English Pronunciation: A Guide for Spanish-Speaking People, also available on Smithsonian Folkways (FW08201).
