    My dad says su-BAR-oo instead of Su-ba-ROO.

    ETA - Subaru...in case it wasn't clear.

    This gets to me.

    And people who say 'me' instead of 'my'. E.g., I don't have me dictionary.

    Somethink and anythink. They drive me nuts. If I hear anyone say either I automatically think they are stupid.

    It's a common mistake. It's actually a Dutch surname (Moet) not French as you would assume. It doesn't make me ragey like the other things on my list, I used to mispronounce it as well

    i think it might a generational thing, but my mother and her sisters, had a quite a few words that they really couldn't say, but also couldn't hear the difference. example, ****a, instead of pizza. collusion, instead of collision. one aunty, could never say helicopter, that came out as helichopter. it was often quite funny to hang around with all of them. the conversations could be really hilarious. and always it was filum, not film. marie.

    South Australians pronounce Lego as lay-go.. I don't understand how they can get laygo out of Lego.

    My hubby doesn't have a lisp but always says free instead of three. I correct him everytime especially when one of our DD's has started copying him.
