Lol, I can't believe the long list of things that I constantly mispronounce! High on my list are Antarctic, Cardsharp, champ at the bit, and diphtheria.
Some of those were hilarious, like, who actually thought it was called Carpool Tunnel Syndrome. I mean, really? And what about confusing founder with flounder? Or Laura Norder for Law and Order? I think the one thing the list pointed out that I absolutely refuse to pronounce correctly is parliament, it just sounds too ridiculous like parlyament!
