Maybe I should just get used to it, but news coverage that can’t get names right doesn’t carry much weight.

Some reporters, including the anchor on ITV’s news coverage in the United Kingdom, are repeatedly mispronouncing the (Former?) Prime Minister’s name. For those who do not know, his name, when devoid of superfluous Sanskritic leftovers and markers of aspiration, sounds like “Taksin Shinawat”.

OK, that’s my good deed for the day.
