Just googled 'creche'. I've been wrong all these years!
I forgot one - '3am in the morning'. Really annoying. The 'am' defines the time of day, making the rest of the sentence superfluous.
I cringe over tack-O (taco) and na-cho (as opposed to nar-cho). My hubby says noos (news) instead of nyoos...it eats away at me every time!
My brother once said -Po-ig-nant instead of poignant in front of me and I laughed so hard...he's corrected me on current events, geography, history etc. my whole life so it felt REALLY good
I used to read the word crustacean as crust-a-see-en and Abu Dhabi as Abba dabba...I'm not sure why but I'm pretty sure my parents weren't actually listening to me read aloud to not correct me on those!
He says 'cresh' doesn't rhyme with egg?? rhymes with fresh lol. I've always said craysh. No idea what the norm is!
He's actually right based on the direction of the dash on the e.
My DH says troth instead of trough and minimin rather than minimum. I used to find it endearing. Now I just want to stab him with a fork 😱
Anyway, there may well be an accent over the e, but honestly it sounds completely ridiculous, in Australia, to pronounce it as cresh. Like he will literally be the only one (I'm guessing). And does he say 'caff-eh' for the word café? Why limit it just to crèche? Lol
