    My husband is only just starting to say WimbleDon, not WimbleTon. My poor kids are going to be so confused. He gets LOTS of words wrong.

    I found when I was spending a lot of time with an English friend who speaks like that, I started to pick it up! Just sounds bogan when an Aussie says it!

    My husband usually speaks very well, but he does say Wimbleton. He also pronounces lasangne "lazonya". I blame his mother for both.
