    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.."
    Definitely!

    And in the cricket when the commentators say "Laaawn-ceston"... it's "Lonn-ceston"!

    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!
