100 Mispronounced words
Arnoldcam correspondent Peggy sends this important list of 100 mispronounced words. Hard to believe but I am actually guilty of a few of these! (It’s not caucaphony?!)
Here are a few of my favorite mispronunciations (I didn’t add words we’ve gone over before like “realator”):
carpool tunnel syndrome
doggy dog world (I say this for fun)
for all intensive purposes
Heineken remover (maybe the best one on the list)
spitting image (really? it’s not spitting image?)
Tiajuana (Isn’t this Aunt Juana?)
upmost (Oswald Chambers probably loves this one)
I’m sure Kyle will lobby for “Bake and Breaks” to be added to the list. If they ever do one for punctuation, I think using possessive as plural should be top of the list. (Seen at Bonesaw’s wedding: Beer, Wine, Coke’s).
