    Default *spin off* what mispronounced words drive you mad

    DH says pay-she-o instead of pa-te-o (patio). Every time he says it I have to stop myself from punching him in the face. Drives me crazy. He also says ingine instead of engine and ingeneer instead of engineer. Grr.

    "broc-u-li" for broccoli, drives me mad! Another "on-velope" for envelope.

    And a few ladies where I used to work would say "I-talians" I'm not even Italian, but seriously if your not going to "I-taly" why would you be seeing "I-talians" there?!?!

    I can't stand 'pacific' instead of specific. It's just lazy. They're two entirely different words.
    Anything that ends with 'think' or 'fing'.
    Substituting Ms for Ns, as in 'sumfing' instead of 'something'. HATE IT.

    And a pet hate of mine, something I want to slap out of everyone that does it... When people say 'hey' or 'ey' on the end of a sentence. "I really want a beer, hey". *shudder* It drives me nutty. I know it's a cultural trait in Canada, but when I hear an Australian say it it makes me cringe inwardly. It just seems so redneck!

    Chaise lounge. Am I right in saying it shayse not chase?

    I would probably drive you all mad as a few friends and I mispronounce some words onpurpose. Gor-met (gourmet) and satch-et (sachet) for example. The problem is its such a habit I do it around everyone! I actually had had someone correct me the other day "actually it's pronounced Gor-may". I was too embarrasses to admit it was on purpose so I just said "oh thanks, I didnt know that"

    "Laz-OHN-ya," for lasagne. MIL says it like this, and so does DP. I hate it. I try to avoid ever mentioning the word, just so I don't have to hear them say it.

    "Should OF." No, you should HAVE. Or at the very least, just say "should've."

    "I done it," or "I seen it." No, you did it and you saw it.

    The ex had "Yog-ert," Not YO-gert for yoghurt. I hated it so much, I was determined there was no way he was teaching DD to say it that way. lol.

    Sounds rough!
    Weeeell... they are both 'allowed' pronunciations. Apparently there is no 'standard' pronunciation for this one, and both are accepted variants.
