    Default Re: *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    I know it's probably a speech problem but when people pronounce 'th' as an 'f' sound it grates me.

    "One, two, free"
    "I fink it's over here"
    "I fought it was here"

    Aargh!

    People mispronouncing my daughters names seriously

    Kianna is not keyyarna Ki makes a key sound and Anna is Anna there is no y sound anywhere in the name.

    And people not listening to the whole of Ashlyn and only hearing Ash and assuming its Ashley and then make me repeat so they can listen properly the second time.
