    I assumed it was roughage. If not then it's perhaps not as funny as I initially thought 😏

    According to the Oxford dictionary there is no such pronunciation as 'trow'. I've never heard of anyone saying it that way either!

    Ah ha ha absolutely love this thread. I've found my people!!!

    My most frustrating is probably people talking about finding their 'Nitch' instead of Niche (neesh)

    Lady at work gave a big speech a few weeks ago and mentioned about 7 times that 'I really found my Nitch at that work place'. My eye was twitching during the speech.....

    It's definitely roughage. Laugh away.

    Not disagreeing, but the English language is weird. We'd say bough, slough and dough without "off" on the end (I know, dough is slightly different, but same principle). Yet trough, rough and cough have "off". No point, just a random musing.

    And I can't stand tack-o's, I know it as tar-cos, also would/should of instead of would/should have.
    One I always say is chilli con carn, even though I'm pretty sure it's meant to be carn-ee.
    Yes! Egg-zel-erate ugh.
    And 'revision' mirror for 'rear vision' mirror.

    I'm reading all these and saying the right way and wrong way out loud. Lucky I'm just alone.

    I probably say some of them different as I'm from overseas.

    My MIL says filum instead of film, my DH says free instead of three but he has a slight lisp.

    Oh and I say sickth which seems to be in the minority.

    Slough? Pronounced how? like sloff or Sl - ow (rhymes with cow)?

    I was sure it's sloff as in sloff off dead skin..

    Finally! And I've been trying to impress you for so long!

    I just remembered too, I did this first aid course once and the trainer insisted on saying regurgitated with two hard Gs (as in garden). I almost snapped my pencil and flounced out.

    Did anyone used to listen to the Ricky Gervais Show podcasts? I remember one episode where Ricky and Steve were trying to teach Karl to say 'minimalist' instead of 'miminalist'.
