Dear Sir:

I can only suggest that of you had wanted to be named Rapparee, you would have spelled it accordingly. The only possible pronunciation for your present spelling does, indeed, rhyme approximatly with "prayer", "air", and dare I say it, "Nair".

You will find no truly English words in which the ending after a consonant "aire" sounds at all like "aree".

And for you to spitefully seek to discredit so creative and elegant a ballad as my own recent humble contribution on shallow and inacurrate phonological ground is a twist worthy of the most loyal Republican.
