Oh and my family make fun of me for mispronouncing words all the time "what's sput-umm (sputum?) " and saying a plant was desi-duous (deciduous )". They often make me read things to see how wrong I can get it...

I only correct people on the Moet / mo-wee / mo-way thing because it's more a "did you know" than a "er, dumbarse, you're saying it wrong". That being said, I wish someone had corrected me on the "epitome" thing so I didn't say it wrong for so long.

Most of these are bug bears of mine. Especially aks, pecific, somethink/somefink, youse.
Not mispronunciations but also detest these mixups:
His instead of he's. OMFG I hate this lol.
Been instead of being.
'Would of' instead of 'would have'
Also don't like the term (as someone else said) 'of a xyz' eg I like a wine of a night.
My DH will often write hay instead of hey in a text. That bugs me but I let it go. One of the few that I do haha
