Another one from me, and it's pretty pedantic, is the pronunciation of loch or the name Lachlan. I hate hearing a hard "k" like "lock". And hearing people say "locklan" or "lockie" makes me twitch. It's a softer sound in the back of the throat that I know isn't something Aussies pronounce. But as a Scot my ears hurt a little bit every time I hear it.

Mispronounced Words *spin off*
My favourite part, 'you never ignore a dildo on your cupcake'. Not sure why I find that so funny but I just do. And I'm still laughing.

FIL says 'sat-eye' for 'satay' .... It really ****s me. He's English and I would be fine with 'sat-ay' but I have no idea where he gets the 'eye' bit from!
Also I am so frustrated by 'OrangutANG' .... It's ORANGUTAN!!! There is no 'G' at the end!!!!
I find myself unable to stop correcting people with this one.

And when people pronounce toilet as tor-let instead of toy-let.
Oh, and random s on the end of Eastland, Northland, Southland (all shopping centres in Melbs), Myer, Deloitte, Autobarn etc. No s on the end people, stop putting it on there.
