Is the Chithust /Amaravati chanting consided authentic in the sense of pronounciation ?
in case anyone doesn't know the Queens (or Kings) English is a pseudonym for Received Pronunciation or BBC English, the standard form of English either written or spoken, not regional meaning, dialect, or slang terms. it is not a term which denotes off-shoot languages such as Scottish, or American which have their own particular linguistic norms. myself speaking Manx-English, just to confuse you all more.
