So I have a problem. It isn’t a big problem, but it is recurring. The problem is I read a lot. How is that a problem, you ask? Well, let me ‘splain it to you, Lucy? My vocabulary is rather…extensive, because I read a lot. Some of the words that I know, don’t get bandied about very often in normal conversation. However, I read them and I know what they mean. I think I know how they’re supposed to sound…sometimes I’m wrong. Sometimes, when you know the perfect word for a situation, you just go with how you think it is pronounced. Sometimes, you ask your mother, who has an equally extensive vocabulary, how you say it. Sometimes, you’re right…or not. John Green tackles this in a Mental Floss video. Commonly mispronounced words.
Tell me I’m not the only person this happens to. Please?
‘Til next time,
