I have a friend from Adelaide and she says Laygo - it's Lego!!
Also can't stand Haitch - and can't believe I'm sounding just like my mother when I correct my kids!
Somethink and even worse somefink drive me bonkers!!!
I hate it when people pronounce medicine as med-son instead of med-i-son. There's an "i" in the middle!
Have noticed Austraya a lot this week too - that really gets on my nerves!
Both 'on' and 'en' are correct for 'envelope'.
The word was borrowed from the French by the British, and was initially pronounced "on-velope", but became more anglicised over the years. Now "en-velope" is the more common pronunciation, but both are accepted.
I often text a friend I meet for coffee to say en route. She then asked why I always spelled on incorrectly lol!
I'm an 'on-velope'er too. It's not incorrect. It's borrowed from a french word, EN-velope is actually the 'newer' anglicized pronunciation.
Oh and I can't do the whole "Hannah and me" thing. In any circumstance. Ever.
It's Hannah and I. Whether or not there's another option that's grammatically correct it just sounds wrong! Perfectly willing to accept the fact that I'm just being pedantic on that one though haha!
"chest of draws" grrr!
It's a chest of drawERs. It kinda makes me laugh though because so many Australians say "chest of draws" yet talk about the "lawrrr of the land"
Axe instead of ask, or excape instead of escape, or brought instead of bought (especially if it's said by sometime in retail lol)
My in laws are shocking!
Punkin (Pumpkin) and Capsicun for dinner.
MIL went to Dublind in Ireland.
SIL always types ect instead of etc in texts.
