The Nature of Mature

In some conversations about English pronunciation recently it seems that there is some confusion in the pronunciation of the words “nature” and “mature”. So I searched around and found this limerick which, if you read it aloud, should make things clear – including the English pronunciation!

The Turning Lady Limerick
A lady can settle a score
By first making a sweet overture;
Then a quick turn of nature
And she’ll suddenly hate y’ur
Which is really not very mature!
