    QLD trained lawyer here and I've not ever heard anyone pronounce it with a 'd'.

    Edit.

    I'm curious if it is regional now. @Mod-Uniquey since you started this 😄 can you remember what state the lawyer was in that pronounce Affidavit as Affidavid?

    Sure can @binnielici, it was in Brisbane (Qld), however everyone else in the office pronounced it properly with the 't'.

    Drives me insane when people pronounce the "j" in jalepeno or the "l" in tortilla.
    I also can't stand when I'm watching sport on tv (which thankfully doesn't happen too often) and pronounce debut as daboo. I want to puncture my eardrums if they happen to mention a MARONE player making his DABOO 😨😨

    My husband's name is Jose. The amount of times he gets called Josie is crazy, it's actually one of his nicknames now! X
