Hello John, Thanks for the link that showed the correct pronounciation for the term senryu. As the writers who are most interested in haiku and related forms, my husband and I often pass along information to the other members of our local writer's group as well as give talks during library programs here. I wanted to be sure and pronounce the term correctly since I have (somewhat by default) wound up teaching others in my town about these genres. Your input about authorial comment was also welcome. I hope to become more aware of when I'm doing this, but realistically it may take me a few tries. Still, you shed light on this for me. Thanks. Rebecca Drouilhet.
