Title: The word “go-ing” sounds different in two places
Post by eduardo on Jan 15th, 2021, 12:26pm
I’ve found that the english word “go-ing” sounds quite different in two places in the same song (Wayfaring Stranger) with the same strucuture of the bars, but changing only the pitch… It’s a very strage phenomena that I couldn’t explain… See the file attached.
Any suggestion?

The second one has an accent on the 'i', i.e. í, like in some Spanish words. This will not be recognized in a UK/US English context.

Yes, of course! Thank you, SDoerr, and congratulations for your excelent sight! Its' really difficult  distinguish among a dot and an accent in the "i".
You have solved the mystery ...

I didn't notice until I saved the lyrics as a text file and opened it in Notepad, where presumably the font size was bigger.

By the way, I also answer to 'Steve'  :D

It is easy to overlook the "magnifying glass" at the bottom of the Edit Lyrics window. It is in fact a slider.

(Of course, you would need good vision to notice this  ;D )

This in invaluable in spotting extra spaces.

I agree, Tony. I will use it more often now...

Thank you.

I have noticed that unexpected behavior by VS usually results from problems in the lyrics that don't appear from looking at the score.  It always pays to scrutinize the lyrics in the editing box, and even then, sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is required for spotting the problem!  :)
