Dear Editor,

The President, academic staff at the University of Guyana, radio and TV announcers, in fact almost every Guyanese these days pronounces the word Three as "Tree" and indeed nearly every word that starts with the letters "th" is pronounced as though there is no "h" in the spelling.

I hope that I am not too late in trying to correct this state of affairs.

Yours faithfully

R.J. Eleazar
