I have a question about which spelling you use when you write some words that have different pronunciations. English is my second language and mostly learn correct pronunciations from watching stuff. Sometimes several words would have different pronunciations from different speakers (even if native).
I have encountered quite a few in Gregg, that, though minor, sometimes stumbles me. For example, the word “hurry” is spelled “h-e-r-i” and thorough is spelled as “th-e-r-o”. If I were to pronounce them, though, it would be different that I would say and spell “huh-r-i” and “th-o-r-o” instead. Do you follow your own pronunciation instead or the prescribed spellings?
