Mispronounced Words *spin off*
My mum is a fake snob and insists on elongating vowels to make names sound posher. We live near Karrinyup. Pronounced ca-rin-up. The first a sound in short. The y is silent. She pronounces the first part like car and makes the y sound. She thinks it's posh but she sounds plain weird. I hate it.
I never correct her though. I personally think it's poor form to correct people for how the pronounce words.
ETA I have corrected people who are just mistaken rather than it being a quirk. I had a friend who had no idea how ciabatta was pronounced and it was embarrassing for her as people struggled to understand what she meant (ciabatta being quite popular at the time).

My mum says ute-da-liptus for eucalyptus (as stated in another thread)
And I agree with everyone else.

Not a mispronounciation, but when people use the wrong word and it makes me laugh.
E.g. using the word poignant to describe a bad smell (pungent), and describing their musical taste as enigmatic (eclectic).
