Can you gain benefits from chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo even if you pronounce it wrong?

Omar,

Generally spoken, if the meaning of what is kept in mind is by heart rebeated, understood and "visualized", there is no problem if chanted wrongly.

Since it could meet the ear of other, possible wrong understood, then wrong taken to heart its good to pronounce right to cause others no troubles... and those later listen to them.

If alone, never up in the future to teach or transfer, if meaning is understood, no problem at all.

One does thing for one self, one does not call for others when chanting text mostly not a language nobody understands.

Beyound generall: more importand is the meaning of the thought/chant one develops and keeps in mind.

Not touching this matter, here for now, is why it was said "generally spoken".
