    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!

    I remember when the Degas exhibit came to town and everyone was saying "yeah, we're going to the deey - gah" and my little French friend could not stop laughing (because its meant to be pronounced doo- gah). She said only Aussies could put that kind of twang on it

    Yes, I've heard it so many times! Hamish and Andy did a joke thing about it, where one of them kept saying it (I forget which), and the other was arguing that if they could say other H words, then 'huge' should be possible!

    As KellyMac said (above) you get it with words like 'humid' too 'you-mid'. Shudder.
