how do you say it?
Sherbet or Sherbert?
HAR-assment or har-ASS-ment
Across the street or Acrossed the street?
When you say “Eggs” does it sound more like Ehggs or Aiggs.
How would you pronounce this one: DePuy
e) dee-poo poo ba doo
Wednesday or Wednesdee?
Incidentally, there is only one correct answer for each of these, and that is however I pronounce it. Everyone else's pronunciations are wrong.
Any other hazardous words I’ve left off the list? Please add them to the mix.
Another word for the list: pecan
And Pee-canz is a great word for the list.
Also, I forgot this one:
Treasure or Traysure
I have a friend who says stand on line and it drives me nuts for some reason.
I love that.
I converted to Coupon (from cewpon) a few years back. I blame Mom for that one.
Here's another one:
In Canada, we pronounce it BAD-min-ton. You know? The way it's spelled? I couldn't understand any of this bad-mitten crap when I came South.
