Word Forum A Daily Discussion of Pronunciation, Spelling and Meaning--Ideas Invited. By Mrs. E. E. Hunter r There is a varied opinion about the pronunciation of contemplate (kon-tem-plat). Webster places the accent on the first syllable altho the English and some of the American dictionaries still favor the second. There are several English and American dictionaries of equal rank altho they may differ in the pronunciation of a word. We keep Webster or Standard as our authority but it is well to remember that there may be another pronunciation with equally good authority. Today's word is the first in the Forum over which there is controversy.
