Words you just say wrong!
« 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. 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.

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).

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!

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

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."
