CORRECT MISPRONUNCIATION

Posted by | February 27, 2013 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Steve lost a bet the other day when he mispronounced “dour.” He rhymed it with “sour” (as most of us do). Turns out the correct pronunciation rhymes with “newer.” Paul’s bet is that people won’t understand Steve if he uses the correct pronunciation and will think he’s a “doer.”  An interesting case of right is wrong and wrong is right. What “correct mistakes” have you noticed out there? (Oh – and Microsoft SpellCheck accepts both “Mispronunciation” and “Mispronounciation” as acceptable. But let’s not get started on spelling…)
