Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I heard from a friend years ago that one of the Rebbes from Gur (the S'fas Emes) wrote a book describing the proper pronunciation of Hebrew letters and words. I am not able to find any trace of such a book online and I wouldn't know how to search for it in real life. Does it exist?

This is of particular interest because it seems chasidei Ger have a distinct system of pronunciation.

@DoubleAA then edit the question to "Is there a book by the Gerrer Rebbe..." –  Shmuel Brin Mar 5 '12 at 4:23
@ShmuelBrill That sounds even more Too Localized! –  Double AA Mar 5 '12 at 4:39
@DoubleAA I think the question is specific enough to allow someone who knows about the book to identify what is being asked. –  Seth J Mar 5 '12 at 14:45
