    A Lawyer I used to know would always say 'Affidavid' as opposed to 'Affidavit', used to annoy me.

    And don't get me started on the pronunciations of maroon (the colour) and asphalt. When I hear "marone" and "ashfelt" I twitch.

    I will also add expresso instead of espresso (SIL, I'm looking at you), negoSiate instead of negoSHEate (though I appreSHEate the former is "legal" I just don't like it) and laygo instead of Lego. It's Lego. The end.

    I also correct people when they said mo-ay instead of Mo-ett when referring to the champers. It's mo-ette.
    I say ashFELT and maRONE.
    Eeep. And Mo-ay :/

    One that drives me nuts? pronouncing gnocchi "nok-ee". instead of "nyok-ee". I know it's not a common sound in English, and lots of people have trouble even distinguishing the difference, but it really grates on me.

    As for lego/laygo...I've lived in Adelaide my whole life, and I say lego. There are certainly the lay-goers around though...and they do bug me.

    I said ROOgarge for years til someone gently told me its ruff-age. And I can't say Mitsubishi. I say mitsy-bushi.

    Oh, and when people say 'I bet so-and-so' instead of beat, and 'versed' as in my team versed North Adelaide. Oh, and 'where's that to?' and 'skun' as in 'he got a skun knee'.

    Oh, and it's not mispronunciation so much as an accent thing... but stoo-pid (rather than styoo-pid) bugs me too.
