This is totally meant to be a fun post!
For some reason while eating breakfast, I remembered something that a friend said and it drove me insane that she was saying it wrong!! Everyone has heard of an Otter box for your cell phones? Well she kept pronouncing it like outer box. And I kept correcting her…but she couldn’t grasp it! LOL!

It’s mischievous (“MIS-che-vous”), not “mis-CHEE-vee-ous.” There is no “I” after the v!

I have a friend that pronounces “idea” as “idear”. She knows she says it wrong but still does it anyways.

Up here in New England, many people add “r” onto the pronounciation of words and think nothing of it. They spell it correctly but can’t say it correctly and don’t acknowledge that it’s weird. It’s so weird though!!

And then leave off the “r” sometimes too. “The boats in the hahbah”
I used to say “for all intensive purposes.” Whoops.

Supposedly not supposably!!!!
and when people are telling a story in the past tense, it’s “he texted me…” NOT “he text me….”

When I was younger I could not say ‘crayon’, it sucked! LOL, always made fun of for asing someone to pass the ‘crowns’ to me.
Also… when people say ‘pacific’ instead of ‘specific’… cause seriously… one is an ocean. 😉 bahahha

LOL my ex used to pronounce random words wrong ALL THE TIME. It was so hard not to laugh during arguments when he’d talk about how “fusstated” he was. He was actually really mean, so it was refreshing to be able to focus on something other than how much of an a-hole he was being lol

Oh, one more.
It drives me CRAZY when people say things like, ‘I don’t know nothing about it’. ‘I won’t have nothing to do with it’. Noooooo! It’s anything!! Just say anything!! Sounds trashy to me haha.

My Fiance laughs at me every time I say “Crayon”. English is my second language so I still have a few words here and there that I totally screw up.
Someone mentioned Flamenco, that made my day. Every time I hear Flamingo dancing I want to start throwing punches!!

lol, I’ve been guilty of pronouncing it expresso in the past! But I’ve learnt my lesson!
Oh gosh…I actually think I’ve been pronouncing that wrong my whole life!!!! LOL
lol! I’d want to facepalm them instead!
Yes, and the English and Australians do that too I’ve noticed! Interesting how the R gets added!!
I just try to avoid that term LOL.
ARG That TOTALLY drives me insane too!
Hahaha, the crown…that’s cute though!! And I’ve never heard anyone say pacific instead of specific, but I can totally see how that’s annoying! And yes, it’s definitely ANYTHING!!!!
hahahah, and that’s (one of the reasons!) why I’m sure he’s an ex 😉 lol

I do this to so many words, although nothing listed. There are some that I cannot say if the written word is in front of me, even though I know the word and how it should be pronounced.
Others, I can’t remember which is the correct pronounciation. For example the store Papyrus. DH makes fun every time I use the wrong of the 2 I have in my head, so I just started calling it ‘that card store’.
The weird one is when spelling something out loud, I have to be careful when there is a ‘j’. I don’t know why, I’ll be thinking j/jay, but it often just comes out of my mouth as g but I think I said it right.
