That's for sure.  Even for simple words, like, "cup," you can get some interesting results.

I remember working on a recipe card where, when you put in 2 cups flour, you got, "two Cuban pesos flour."  However, just changing the 'c' on "cup" to a capital made the synth say "cup."

The mysteries of how and when certain pronunciation choices get made, and when certain things are interpreted as abbreviations versus words, are deep.
