Realizing the different dialects in the Muscogee language, the Muscogee Language Program Committee had to determine the dialect to be used for the language instruction.  The selections for the pronunciation and spelling may or may not be your customary way of pronouncing the word.  The dialect chosen is not to diminish other dialects nor does it mean there is a right or wrong way to pronounce those particular words.  It does mean, however, the program had to elect one way to teach and say the word to enable consistency in teaching the language.  Therefore, it was a committee decision for the pronunciations in the Muscogee Language Program curriculum.
