    or the OED, once I ascertain what their position is. I don't actually believe that speakers of one language have any right to demand that speakers of a completely different language change their pronunciation to suit them. In French, London is called "Londres." In Spanish, New York is "Nueva York." In Russian, Boston is "Bah-STON," with the second syllable pronounced like "stone." No cause for offense in any of this so far as I can see. But if respected English usage authorities have declared that in English, the correct spelling is Quran or Qur'an, I'll go along with that.
