      A little beside Pali - but what is "proper
      pronunciation" when chanting Chinese sutras? Is it
      modern Mandarin or modern Cantonese (which I don't
      think existed when those sutras were composed), or is
      it some attempt to reconstruct the actual
      pronunciation of those times?
