If you don't live in Victoria or don't follow AFL this will mean nothing to you, but I hate it when people say "Ess-adon Bombers" instead of "Essendon." Nearly all of the footy players say it wrong!
A player being interviewed on TV on Sunday kept saying "Deffenly"... "Oh, yes, deffenly.."

One of my facebook friends was telling everyone how "cleaver" her DS was.

I hate hearing commentators say 'Broncos' with a silent 'c'. To do it right you have to put on a very rough and macho voice: "Bron-owes"
Kind of like a glottal stop.

I hate it when I post in FB on my phone. I always type too fast and autocorrect gives my sentences a whole new meaning.
The latest was a photo of me 'squinting into the sin' ... I had to correct it to 'sun' in the next comment. Although I've done a bit of sinning I could squint at!!

Ohh 'greazy' instead of 'greasy' makes me shudder.
And when the last Olympics coverage was on, all the references to "Bay-ging" (with the 'g' sound as in 'ginger').

I think the whole 'alagent' rubbish is quite Victorian? My aunt left Sydney and lived in Melbourne for 10 years and I think she's past the point of return, her pronunciation is rubbish!
Oh. And when people say proNOUNCiation instead of proNUNciation. Grrrr!
