    I hate it when people say uzz, but not sure it's incorrect... I mean it's not "uss", it's "us"... & you don't say iss for is, you say iz... maybe it's like "i before e, except after c, except for when there is an exception"?!!!

    My grandma says la-z
    ZON- ya not sure where the "o" sound came from but I'm constantly correcting her.
    She also says Aldis instead of just Aldi, oh and Saveways instead of Safeway.
    She also always says me instead of my eg. Me arm hurts. Drives me nuts!!

    How does everyone say pronunciation?

    I always say pro-nun-see-ashun
    But I always here pro-noun-see-ashun

    And what's wrong with on-velope in stead of En-velope :-)

    Actually I think some of her stuff is worthwhile! Just not the way she talks

    I pronounce it like you do. And I say "on-velope", although I don't get upset when I hear it the other way

    How about "new"? I say "nyoo", but in recent years I've heard a lot of "noo". Is it an American thing?

    Funnily DP randomly mentioned this last night. He asked why is it pronounced on-velope when you say en-velop, I laughed and told him he was weird as I say en-velope.

    I think both are acceptable pronounciation though.
