    When people say the g in singing.

    As in "But i've been sing-ging all my life, I really want this"

    Must. Not. Watch. American. Idol.

    I don't get it, do you pronounce it 'sinning'?

    No, but they pronounce with a hard g. So like "sin-ging".

    I haven't heard anyone pronounce it like that, would irritate me too!

    It's pretty common up north in England.

    One I can't stand - when people say 'huge' without the 'h'. Like "uge". I've only heard it in Australia - seems to be common though!
