Halacha - DikDuk in Tefila
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

While it is commendable to pronounce the holy words of the Tefillos precisely, it is rare that confusing Mil'el and Mil'ra would change the meaning of the words, and to the best of my knowledge it does not occur anywhere in the significant parts of davening and is not something to be overly concerned about.

Certain verbs ending in an aleph hey such as ba'ah can change tense from past to present if the emphasis on on the first or last sylable. In suc a case it would change the meaning of the word and may be considered to have not said the correct word.

What if it WOULD change the meaning? Would saying incorrectly be considered like not having said it?
