    I can't say cinnamon or permenant. I always say 'cin-monnnonon' it's been better since my braces have been on though

    My brother has Down syndrome and I'm always correcting his speach to try and help him but he says serviettes as assassinate lol it's kind of cute speach barrier between Italian to English too!

    Axe instead of ask, or excape instead of escape, or brought instead of bought (especially if it's said by sometime in retail lol)
    I say draws. What's wrong with draws? Do you mean people actually put an 'ers' on the end? Like draw-ers?

    Oh another one!
    'birfday' not 'birthday'
    Not sure why people substitute 'f' for 'th' all the time?

    My old boss is a south Londoner and says firty- free- and a fird. He couldn't hear himself say it and couldn't hear the difference.

    I love the Irish way. Tirty- tree and a turd!

    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!
    You're not being pedantic, you've just got it wrong!

    Lambjam, is it correct to say "Hannah and me" or "me and Hannah" or does this not matter?
