    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    *random childhood memory alert*

    When my elderly great aunt moved to Australia from the UK she really struggled with the Australia accent.

    My bestie and I used to sleepover at her house regularly (she had soft drink - it was v exciting) and I remember her finally working out when we called her 'arnie' we were actually calling her 'aunty'.

    We thought we were annunciating the 't' but clearly we weren't to UK standards!

    As KellyMac said (above) you get it with words like 'humid' too 'you-mid'. Shudder.
    Hmm.. Maybe i will need to listen more carefully and see if i notice it.
