One for myself, when I was younger I once misread epitome as epitoime so went around for years bandying about the made up word "epi-twahm" thinking I was so fancy knowing a posh word and saying how things were totally the epi-twahm of such and such.
When I really looked at the word you know, 8 years later, and saw how it was actually spelled I
2) realised what people meant when I'd heard them say "e-pit-o-mee" and
3) saw the irony in my being the absolute epitome of an epi-twaht 😏

My DP and his youngest DS have the same shaped mouths, and they both pronounce the word clothes as 'cloves'. If he tries to pronounce it properly he looks hilarious sticking his tongue right out, trying to emphasise the 'th' sound. Haha

The first time I saw the word paradigm, I pronounced it para-dig-mmmmm 😋
Someone I know says krish-ening instead of christening. Drives me insane.

Also when people pronounce schnitzel as snitzel. t's a German word, they love their "sch" sound, include it!!
My brother when he was little used to say ping-wahn instead of penguin. It was cute and our family calls them pingwahns all the time then though we know it's wrong 😂
I hate saying bruschetta in public because I've heard both broosketta and brooshetta argued as being correct so I avoid saying it.

I have a friend who calls UHT milk UHU milk, but pronounces it 'yoohoo milk'. We go camping a lot so she says it a lot, and now I feel like I've left it too late to be able to non-awkwardly correct her lol.
