    Exspecially...there is no x people!!!

    My MIL is always pronouncing words wrong and it drives me crazy.

    And another that gets me is jus - as in steak served with a red wine jus..
    Hate hearing it pronounced with an s on the end..

    Pronunciation is a whole other kettle of fish

    I can not stand people pronouncing broccoli as 'brock-oh-lie' that is not how you pronounce it!!!

    I think it's a proactive ad where the guy says 'I seen improvement in my skin..'. I cringe whenever it comes on.

    My late father used to say mines as in belonging to him! It was pronounced really harshly with a "z" at the end.
