"If you can't do something smart,do something right."-Jayne Cobb
‘Garage’ is one that seems as though I’ve never heard it pronounce the same way twice.
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
The ‘d’ always amuses me, but sometimes I wish some people would go back to ‘carriage house’.
I constantly talk to people from Rho Dieland.
Menstration instead of menstruation. People tend to ignore the U in the word for whatever reason.
Eh....ee-kuh-nom-iks versus eh-kuh-nom-iks. Same deal.
And tell me - is it really meant to be 'Conn-NET-icut' instead of 'Conn-nekt-icut'?
P.S. It was ages and well into my twenties before I realised it was 'Arkan-SAW' and not 'Ark-Kansas'.
P.P.S. You will NEVER have me say Caribbean any way except 'Carib-BEE-an.' I refuse any other way.
I've found most people can't say "Oregon" correctly.
And technically, "Chinese" is just a pet peeve when people say neeeeze like Ebeneezer, it's not really right or wrong since it's just an English word that they don't use themselves anyway, but I still say it more like Chai-niece rather than neeezzzzz.
Cannot be worse than every black person I come across pronouncing ask as ax. Drives me insane.
I'm not sure but I vaguely remember hearing that in the news and being like no shit with all the sugar, salt, etc. she uses in her food.
i can't stand when news reporters say someone has Gone Missing!

In all honesty I probably wouldn't slap someone, but I just might kick the ass of the next person who asks me if they can "acks" me something. Or I just might axe them instead. (Not really, but in this context it is a bit humorous).
It's never too early in the year,

cimmonin instead of Cinnamon.
I used to get really annoyed by mispronunciation haha. But my english has dropped so bad I don't really mind anymore as long as I understand what they say.
I'm conscious of how people talk but I reckon the OP has issues with anger.
There is nothing like the naked abuse any language by native speaker that riles me more.
Except for naked jingoism, racism, anti-semitism, closet homophobia and just plain stupidity.
I'd love to slap the shit out of a few people for that as well.
I will slap the shit out of the next person who calls it a "Wind Turban."
It is a turbine. Tur. Bine.
You guys are all sound like sloppy now..............
Where are you at? instead of Where are you?
