    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    The result of lazy (or misinformed) teachers. There are two simple ways to figure it out:

    1. Take "Hannah" out of the sentence. "Would you like to come with me?". If you put "Hannah" back in the "me" still stays the same.
    2. Reverse the names. "Would you like to come with I and Hannah" is clearly incorrect

    As for me, my husband and his mother say "Wimbleton" instead of "Wimbledon". Makes me grind my teeth a little.

    Haven't read everything as I'm too tired to right now but someone used to annoy me by saying
    "inkels" instead of "equals".
    Sorry if its been said already.

    It does when my step mum says it. She also shops at targets and best and lest. She would soak her clothes in nappy sand and my nan would not make any big purchase unless it came with a warrantry.
    I also have heard sictember instead of September and for the netball players gold attack gold shooter and gold keeper. Ugh.

    I got up to page 12, and am concerned I mispronounce lasagne. I say la-zun-ya, but the first syllable is closer to le, iykwim. that seems to be correct from a quick look up?

    I remember my mum used to always say croissant with the french pronunciation, but I think when foods are adopted by another country, you don't need to use their native pronunciation.
