What words do you naturally mispronounce? Or on purpose? General Language Destruction

I used to always get ragged on for pronouncing some words wrong. Like when you know a word from reading it, but never hear it spoken because you hang out with delinquents, so you say things like 'seameant' instead of cement?


Also, shortening words in general is hella funny to me and a few in the crew. For an example: we call it 'ling' instead of 'lingo' rofl

I read Game of Thrones books as a teenegar and when the show came out I discovered I'd been pronouncing every name incorrectly for 20 years.

Yeah, some names in books just go over my head. I'm reading this Russian book with these names I can't really pronounce in my head (not to mention each character has ~10 variations of different names with formalities and whatnot), so I pretty much just skip them and hope I'm guessing right who's saying things

Guests, Suggestions, mostly plural nouns. It could be that I don't like the way it's supposed to be sounded out.

I usually pronounce <insert offensive word here> as <insert your username here>.

I'm constantly told I mispronounce jalapeno wrong. I pronounce it as hala-peeno because this is America. It irritates me when people correct me and say its pronounced hala-payneo. I'm not Spanish so why should I say it with a Spanish accent? Next people will be demanding that I say Mehico instead of Mexico.

I hear pho is pronounced "fuh" or "fah". I pronounce it "foe" because this is America. It irritates me when people correct me and say its pronounced "fah". I'm not Vietnamese so why should I say it with a Vietnamese accent? Next people will be demanding that I say YEERO instead of GYRO

So, how do you pronounce gyroscope?

I recently noticed that I pronounce "sure" as "shore" and have been making every effort to change it because it sounds really stupid.

I pronounce Canada as Ca nay de ah sometimes because I think it's funny.

Also Louisville is correctly pronounced "lulville". It is best placed as far back in the throat as possible.



Nah man, Louisville is luavull.

My grandma would kill at this game.

Windows = Winders

And that Chevrolet sports car, it's called a Chevy Camario.
Not to be confused with another Chevy product, half car/half truck. Those are called El Camarios.
Corvettes are also Camarios.

Did you do your homework = Did you get your lessons up?

All refigerators are called cavinaters

Yeah this. Either I go full rolling Rs or I sound like I suffered a stroke. Other than that I don't know but I probably misspronounce a shitton of English words.
