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"!
Parsta! Noooo.... Hehe! Nonna wouldn't approve of that pronunciation!
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!!"
