    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    Anything 'per' pronounced 'pre' like preformance, prehaps (Andy Lee is shocking for it).

    Skun as a past-tense of skin ('He skun his knee') which you hear in country SA.

    And people that say 'and I' when it should be 'and me'.

    Also, it's a text thing, why is everyone writing 'defiantly' instead of 'definitely'?

    *shudder*. I could go on forever...

    Yes, tortilla is pronounced tort-tee-yah.

    Jalapeño is pronounced with an H, not a J.

    Quinoa is keen-wah - not "koo-know-a".

    Actually I am one who often, infact I believe I have always said "and I" lol

    For example... Hannah and I are going to the shops.

    I have always believed it to be correct and infact "me" to be incorrect in this sense. However if you say Hannah and me full stop (nothing to follow on with) then I find that correct.

    I cannot stand hearing Hannah and me are going to the shops rrr lol

    Croissant...the Australian pronounciation makes me twitch too.

    Also, I went to a French restaurant here once and the waiter said "Escargot" and pronounced the 'T'

    Gnocchi - correct pronunciation is "Nyoh-kee, not "knock-ee".

    Fajitas - once again, J is an H "faheetas"

    Noir is "Nwahr"...not "noy-er".

    I could go on forever!

    Well actually London I do too. I rarely ever use the word me lol. However I learnt years ago that and me. Was infact politically correct. Whether this is really true, I don't know.

    I still however say... Hannah and I are going to the shops. Or Hannah and I full stop lol
