Title: Words you just say wrong!
Post by: RipTide on January 19, 2004, 09:07:16 pm

Is there a word that you just always pronounce strange, and you know you aren't saying it right...but you say it like that anyway?

I pronounce 'crayon' sort of like 'crown' and it drives my friend insane. I really don't care.

Anyone? Or am I just a freak with weird speech?

For the longest time I pronounced "stiffling" wrong.....until my junior year when I read it out loud in a paragraph, and was totally embarrassed.....instead of "sty-fld" I pronounced " stiff-ld"

one girl, I heard, was sitting with a friend and her own family at a restaraunt, and the friend picked up a miniature cooked squid, and said out loud, "Look at all it's testicles!".everyone heard it...LOL and there was laughter....but she was corrected on the spot, when the girl told her they were called "tenticles" The girl was one of my classmates, and she told the story for a class speech, only she left out the quote, and onlyput in the correction aftermentioning laughter.ahhh, the dramatic holes, that make it all the funnier! LOL!

LOL
Oh my.... That's good enough to be on a sitcom or something.

The only one I can think of for myself is "anemone". I still don't know if I spelled that right -- I'm borderline dyslexic as it is. :P That one just makes me crazy.

Lol, you know how your supposed to pronounce "bass" when your talking about the type of guitar player like base? Well I pronounce it like bass, like the fish and everyone always makes fun of me.
I'll be like, "He's the bass player." And someone will say, "Oh, he plays the fish?" lol.

I remember for the longest time I pronounced "chaos" incorrectly. It's supposed to be kay-oss, and I kept saying cha-ohs. Boy was that embarassing.

Also, I used to think it was " for all intensive purposes" but it's "for all intents and purposes". Think about it. The first one doesn't make sense.

I always said offence wrong..like when you're saying "No offence" if you don't mean to offend someone, i always say it like no offence, as if they were in a football match" lmao...

and then i always used to say maniacally wrong too...like manikly....lmao...

there have been others, but seeing as my brain is down for temporary renovations....

lots of love always, jesssica

No offense! Go defense!

Jessica, that's awesome.

I just thought about two books whose names took me forever to learn how to say properly:

The Metamorphoses (meta-mor-PHO-sees).

The Silmarillion. (Simalarion? I'm a bit slow).

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 12:56:46 am

Tis oaky dearie! lmao...it's beginning to seem like you rather enjoy my insane stories...but really...I should just start saying GO DEFENSE! when i make fun of someone...i think it'd rather fit.

Now try this one: LaFollete....I still haven't figured it out...it's the name of a dorm complex at my campus...and I mispounounce it EVERy time...and end up resorting to LaF for short....easy short snappy words for me! lmao

oaky? lmao...It's just a bit of OAKY! You'll get over it soon! just apply some simillarion creme to that rash, and wait for a couple of maniacal metamorphoses...and GO DEFENSE! you should be looking good in a couple weeks!

lmao...okay, duid i JUST make fun of myself?

lots of love always, jessica

I do like your inane stories, Jessica. I will admit it. (Oh no! I admitted it! I'm encouraging inane behavior! What about insane behavior? Am I encouraging that? I do hope so.)

I think you DID just make fun of yourself duid. Duid? Dood?

I'll take a shot at this: LaFollete= lah-foal-et? lah-foy-et?


GO DEFENSE!

Wait...I'm not supposed to say that...you are!

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 01:11:50 am

GO DEFENSE!


anyways....INANE behavior is second cousin to insane behaviour, of which I'm the master of both....but what aboot maniacl, eh?

lmao...i think, aside from all my Typos and mis-pronunciations...is my crack-ass accents...

i lapse into some weird turntable type mix of british, scottish, southern, australian, canadian, and just plain damn yankee....so IMAGINE that...

oh...say y'all in a british accent..it's fun...



lots of love always, jessica

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: curious bout efans on January 20, 2004, 01:16:40 am

Wow, we seem to be dominating this board. Oops. :-[

I tried saying "y'all" in a British accent. It sounds like I'm yawning or something. It sounds unnatural.

Maniacl? Not maniacal? Manicle? I forget what a manicle is...manticore? Pajamy jam? Who?

I'm trying to think of more words I can't say properly. I can't think of any right now, because my vocabulary seems to consist of a lot of "just", "really", "but", and "Yes, I'm awesome."

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 01:19:53 am

GO DEFENSE!

I don't feel bad aboot domineering this board1 lmao....

it can't be MY fault that an ancient egyptian lady put a curse on me 18 years ago, that induces spastic hand motions...the only way i can control it is by typing!

lmao...anyways...

manicle...sounds like mandible...or like, shackle, or something...

lots of love always, jessica

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: curious bout efans on January 20, 2004, 01:26:24 am

Are you really going to write "GO DEFENSE!" every time you post here?

Cause that'd be awesome.

I thought of two more words:

1. clique - is it click or cleek? No one will ever know for sure.

2. chamois - as in a moist chamois. (I got this from Strong Bad).

An ancient Egyptian lady cursed you 18 years ago? When you were a baby? Why was an Egyptian lady there? And what does 'ancient' mean? Like she was so old she was falling apart? Did she time-travel? Oooh, that sounds neat.

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 01:30:56 am

Firstly... GO DEFENSE!

secondly...CLICK.

Thridly, i have no idea what the hell a chamious is...lmao

Fourthly..ever read Douglas Adams. if you haven't you should. if you have, then good...here's a noble peace prize. anyways....

yes the lady traveled from ancient Egypt 125 B.C. in a TARDIS....(if you read Adams...you'll understand what the hell I'm blathering about)....but she wasn't really falling apart...but then again, i don't remember....i was just born....lmao....

ohhhhh...to keep this on topic!

*trys valiantly and fails miserably*

i never knew how to say or SPELL leprechaun....i still don't....

i always used to say leper-o-ch-on

lmao..I'm a dweeb..got lots of grief over that..but then again. I'm not irish, so sue me...

lots of love always, jessica

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: curious bout efans on January 20, 2004, 01:40:29 am

A chamois is the same thing as a shammy, I believe - they're both used to clean things. Like a towel, I suppose.

Yes, I've read Douglas Adams. I've read the Hitchhiker's series, The Salmon of Doubt, and Last Chance to See. I want to read The Meaning of Liff and the first two Dirk Gently books.

You should read Terry Pratchett. He's good too.

I pronounce it 'click' as well. But some people still say 'cleek'.

I'm pretty sure you spelled 'leprechaun' correctly.

I can stay on-topic; no problemo.

Onerous...as in burdensome. Used to say "own-er-us"; which is actually closer to the Latin pronounciation. But in English, I believe it's pronounced very much like the word 'honorous'. Without the 'h' sound.

Onus is probably my favorite word in Latin. ONUS. So funny. It just means burden...or load.

I have a big ONUS.

*giggle*

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 02:16:48 am

GO DEFENSE!

um...um...*grabs dictionary*

how do you say milk? is it millllk...or melk...or like miulk...or like miulk?...lmao....

i say it like mielk....if THAT makes sense but when do i ever? a

and sorry about that damn gypsy curse...i've just had a LOT of practice typing..i want to be a journalist when i grow up, and i've sort of made it my career to write...so I'm just really damn ass good at it.

lots of love always, jesica

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: curious bout efans on January 20, 2004, 02:21:43 am

Ah well, I'm also posting to other threads in-between this one and the other one...this one is the word one? Yeah, okay.

It's milk. Like...milk. Not melk. Who are you people? ;)

I love the way Australians say 'water'. So awesome.

I want to be a writer; not necessarily a journalist. But that's a way off. A long way. Really long. Like...so long...it's like...um...really long.

Don't you think I'd do well? My descriptions are so...descriptive. And stuff.

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: Spaders55 on January 20, 2004, 03:34:31 pm

For years I couldn't say "geography" I would say it like
"geo-graph-ee" or something like that. And when I was in 3rd grade, I was in the geography bee, and I remember being so worried I was going to have to say geography, and people would make fun of me. :-[

Post by: Araknid on January 20, 2004, 07:10:51 pm

Cinnimon (probably doen'st helo that I can't spell it either eh?)

And sec(s) as in 'g on for a sec'

Unfourtunatly I'm a lost cause, its inherrited :P

I'm slightly confused. There are two versions of this thread, but one's been locked... why was it locked in the first place?

And something I said wrong (I'm the Queen of saying the wrong words), instead of 'nautical engineer' I told my mum and brother that my friend's dad was a 'neurotic engineer' ::) Go me.

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: LleMellon on January 20, 2004, 08:04:35 pm

That locked part of the thread was actually just some posts that curious bout efans and I made last night, going crazy, and we were posting on like eight threads with this one long continuous debate about nothing in particular and sharing our views on stuff. It didn't really relate to this thread, so I'm assuming the mods just moved it out to keep this thread flowing, and so only the die-hard fans of my own insanity will go read that part of the thread, because it really is that scary. It was 4 a.m. in the morning....

Title: Re:Words you just say wrong!
Post by: WackoJacko20000 on January 20, 2004, 08:12:57 pm

Ah, fair enough ;)

Here's another bunch of words I used to not be able to say:
Yellow - came out as lello
Lollypop - came out as yoyipop
(how thick is that? I couldn't say 'yellow lollypop' but I could say 'lello yoyipop' - idiot ::))
Moon - came out as miiiuuuun

Post by: Silmewen on January 20, 2004, 08:13:58 pm

When I was four or five years old, I couldn't say "Go" to save my life... I kept on saying "Doh" instead.. I got made fun of a lot for that in my gymnastics class :P

And I can not say Lacto-ovo ::) Kinda weird.. I found that out during health class... We were reading about vegetarians and one of the kinds is lacto-ovo and guess who had to read that particular paragraph out loud... me ;) I was stuck on that word for like 2 minutes and I had the whole class yelling how to say it correctly in my face... I just gave up ::)

I do the same thing with crayon. I also say pinch like... peench. It's more of an "e" sound that "i".

When I was little, I could never pronounce my "r"'s. So my family was highly amuzed with getting me to say purple purse. I also had a hard time with "s"'s.
