    Default Right or Correct - which one?

    Hi,

    I read the following in a book on Indian- English.

    "Rapidex comes with a cassette which the preface promises will help the reader gather confidence in speaking with the right pronunciation."

    My questions are:
    1. Is it ok to say right pronunciation? Or should it be correct pronunciation?
    2. What is the difference between right and correct in contexts like the one above? Is there a difference at all?

    Could you clarify please.

    Arun

    Either is fine. "Right" is less formal.

    I would have written it as:
