I realize that it is rather silly to let it go any old way, but really there is a limit to the number of dialects. I explain the major ones in the updated pronounciation guide ( http://www.angelfire.com/super2/tigeria/pronounciation.doc ).
The rules were only set in place because most often they produce a good flow. However, people are allowed to have personal preference, and it is expected that the common people would not have a perfect mastery of their beautiful language. I myself often receive criticism, but I find it helps to relate to the people. It's good to be the king/president (Tegireserana has a hereditary presidency, but that's a long story).
