    Um I think we live in the same town..

    Pregnet. Even worse when they spell it like that.

    My ex used to say "milt", as in "put the ice cream in the freezer or it will milt". It took me 9 years of nagging to finally get to the point where he would say ".... milt. Sh!t I mean MELT".

    Ohh another one- 2 of my kids say "panguin" (penguin). The other one is constantly correcting them!

    I get in trouble for saying "orc-shon" not "oc-shon" (auction)
    And "may-or" not "mare" (mayor). Which is correct?

    I say "dahnce" and "orc-shon" too. Both English pronunciations Although I think WA tends to do the 'ah' sound for things like 'dance' - is that right?

    I think that in the dictionary they are listed with the same pronunciation (won and one). How do you mean, Zeddie?

    I don't even live in that state anymore (Vic), but it may have been. Is everyone ignorant to the correct pronounciation where you live?
