    It's OK, now back in Melb I can tell people I'm just heading off to Pakenham Upper (pron. pack-en-em up-her). It's a few exits after Ernst Wanke road.

    I do say Pasta, Taco, Nacho and, a new one for the thread Satay without any arrr sound.
    I'm English and that's how we pronounce those words.

    I get abused at work for how I say Satay, if we ever order Chinese food for lunch.
    My response is always, you don't say "I sart down" you say "I sat down"

    The other one that bugs me is "renumeration" instead of "remuneration"!

    My parents say capsicun - instant twitch from me!

    Another addition - pronouncing medicine med-sen. Ick.

    Oh, and another - I'm particular about saying Australia properly. So many people say Austraya or just straya!

    Have to agree with you Calstar I am English too and have had so many discussions with people over here (in a light hearted way) about the words I apparently say 'wrong' for some reason the extra 'r' is thrown around everywhere over here and makes some very strange words lol.

    Just thought of one that my mum says that really bugs me- dretful, instead of dreadful. And because of the context that you say it in, there is always so much emphasis on the part that she says incorrectly... "oh it was just DRETful!!"
