    Oh, so very many... Where to start...

    Punkin is very annoying.

    As is greazy.

    And 'mile' instead of 'miles'.

    And and 'pair' used as plural (e.g., "Three pair of jeans.")

    A whole nother.

    Ex-cetera.

    Nucular. (The day I heard McGee on NCIS say it was a sad one indeed...)

    Axe instead of ask.

    Mis-chee-VEE-us instead of 'mis-che-vus'

    Apposed to instead of opposed to.

    Expresso.

    So many more...

    MIL has some great ones. 'Ambleeyance' for ambulance, 'hosbibal' for hospital, 'teesy pegs' for teeth, 'sipper' for any cup of any type, 'tea' is dinner but 'herb drink' is tea (the beverage)

    She's a bit.....yeah.

    I don't like it when people pronounce 'wary' as 'weary' and vice versa.

    Also pronoucning mischievous as mischeeveeus. There is no 'i' after the 'v' people!

    Everyone says "vicious circle" when the correct quote is "vicious cycle".

    Actually I have to argue this one (because I'm pedantic like that). "Trooper" is a rank in the Australian Army. They're armoured diggers, usually tank drivers etc. but they can also be cavalry. They're one of the 'harder' trades and usually are the ones to be counted on when the chips are down and are known to work with and through anything to get the job done.

    Trooper actually comes from trouper (or troupier, if you want to be technical) but we don't use that spelling for the rank.

    So in retrospect, trooper would be more appropriate than trouper in Australia

    I HATE PACIFIC!!! It's SPEcific! Drives me NUTS!

    The 'dry reaching' one - I thought that was a legitimate Aussie version of the saying, as I'd never heard it until I moved here, and it seems like everyone says it!

    And one that causes me dilemmas:

    Moet & Chandon.

    Correction pronunciation is mow-ett and sha-ndon - NOT moe-ay. Mr Moet, who founded it, was French but his family was Dutch and his name pronounced Mow-ett.

    Because it's champagne, people try to pronounce it in the French way.

    So, my dilemma is that every time I hear "Mow-ay" (or, worse, "Mow-ee") it makes me twitch, as I know that it's "Mow-ett." But EVERYONE says "Mow-ay", and if I say "Mow-ett" then (a) Everyone will think I'm an idiot and have it wrong, (b) It might open up a conversation where I have to explain it, and then everyone thinks I'm all pretentious.

    That one LITERALLY kills me. Thank God it's not my favourite champagne...

    me too, i hate saying the correct pronunciation because people will come up to me and say you mean mo-ee don't you.
