can anyone tell me..
...why the BBC's standard pronunciation for Manuel de Falla's surname is "de FAL-li-ya" rather than "de FI-ya"? Radio 3 have been doing it all week and now Counterpoint on Radio 4 are doing it too. Although the contestant pronunced it "de FI-ya".
I used to be a physicist, then a science communicator, then an events manager, then a student of English Literature. Now I'm a wife and mother and never entirely sure who I am, but I know God loves me.
