Default Mispronounced words that annoy you

Nukular. It's nuclear dammit! Nu-cle-ar.

Melk Apparently this is what you call a glass of milk at Mel's diner.

Eye-talian. F*** that one irritates me.

Warsh. Where did the R come from?

Woof. As in Werewoof, Woof Man, etc. Woof is what he says, not what he is. Idear -there is no "r" in the word "idea"
Axe- it's ask and it is called a library not a liberry.

How the hell did you guys not put the bastardization of ask as "Axe" in Capslock lol. edit: good sh!t goldenryan

Anywho British people pronounce schedule as schedule and not skejewel.
and
brownies pronounce aluminum as almuneeyum

Fookin hell add the entire Boston and NYC and Jersey butchering of "r" especially pwarlwar irritating as fukkk my god southern accent sounds better.

Oh and EEROCK (Iraq). IT is not fukking Eyerack. Not only did you mess up one vowel but you butchered ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the vowels of modern day babylonia you fukking phonetic deviants. Newsflash. More often than not AS ARE pronounced as "ahhhhh" e's as "aayyyys" is as "Eeees" os as "ohhs" and us as "oooo". In IndoEuropean languages, Arabic Languages, Latin derived languages. My god.


Speaking proper English is a good thing.

I dated a chick who said irregardless almost 10 x a day. She was hot as shit and we were only together for fun so I really didn't say nothing about it.

But damn, I wanted to yell "regardless" is the word you are looking for dumb-hot broad. She is now banging chicks and I am sad all the time. Looks like she won the breakup

Damn you turned her gay. That's rough dude.


Here's some that get in my craw:

Supposeably

For all intensive purposes

I could care less



One of the best ones I've heard came from a patient of mine who needed to sign some documents and asked me if I knew a notary republican.

For some reason, a lot of people from Warshington say it like that. You'd think you live in the state you should be able to pronounce it!

Probly instead of Probably.

When people extend the 'n' sound and drop the 't' sound in certain words.

"Oriennal Flavor" "Mennal Hospital"



I also get annoyed when white people make no attempt to correctly pronounce Spanish words. The other day we were passing by a taco shop called Vaqueros and my friend pronounced it 'Vuh-ker-ROES'

I do the second thing, I just realized it as I read your post. I drop the "t" in a lot words.

I also always say "proly" instead of probably

These are characteristics of an American accent. What's your native language?
