    LOL. This is a running argument between my mother and father :) He misused it once and my mother has never let him live it down :D Now he does it pointedly just to bother her

    Jon and I have SUCH teasers over our respective dialects :D He tells me I have a bad case of "south in the mouth" but then he says things like "accrost" instead of "across"

    And don't even get me started on "pecan" I'll strangle him.

    Wait til you hear our Aussie accents - Krista and I had such fun!

    When I was on the phone to Disney the other day I found myself saying Mast-ercard instead of Mahstercard (the way I normally say it) :p015: Hope the CM didn't think I was trying to be funny!

    You bet!

    And as for things people say that make my teeth hurt - my DS insists on pronouncing the letter h as haitch - and I think he does it to annoy me now!

    My DH doesn't care and teases me when I pull DS up on it - so I've kinda given up but it still BUGS me! :rolleyes008:

    LOL...there is a bit of "reverse teasing" in my house from my children....they laugh at me when I *correctly* pronounce words as opposed to pronouncing them with our "geographical dialect" For instance, this number: 10....at "home" they say "tin," I make a DEDICATED effort to pronounce it correctly...and my kids make fun of me.

    You've already selected my favourite annoyances!

    It's nice to have fun with words, but when a national leader consistently mispronounces a word, I tend to wonder--just a bit!

    Another oner is asterisk. I seem to meet a number of people who say "asteriks" instead--transposing the last two letters.

    Oh, and how about aks (axe) for ask? That one will send me too.

    Whatsa' madder wit' acrosst? I love regional dialects and colloquialisms. Not quite the same as mispronouncing...
