I have a few because they make me laugh when I hear them [someone I know mispronounced them]: coup, debris, paradigm, lineage, indigenous [all those words but one were from when I was in anthropology class, and the person who pronounced them wrong was the one reading my textbooks]
I like the word “inconceivable” because every time I see or hear it I’m reminded of the most common dictionary definition: “not conceivable”) [I cracked up when I saw that].
When I first saw the place names “Nova Scotia” and “Saudi Arabia” written, I didn’t pronounce them right. To this day, my mother and I still laugh about that (and I was definetly old enough to know better with “Saudi Arabia”)
Mom’s ex-boyfriend’s daughter used to say “walermelon” instead of “watermelon.” She could say “watermelon,” but for whatever reason whenever she was talking fast it didn’t come out right. [Her brother, incidentally, said “Lebadon” instead of “Lebanon.”]
Place names I like would have to be Trout Run and Wyamissing.
Someone I know doesn't pronounce the r in California, and it's not the local accent, so it makes me laugh [she grew up here and has never beenout of the state].
I forgot all about happenstance. Don’t see or hear it much.
(1) Young I may be, but even young people are entitled to their opinions.
(2)Attempting to silence me doesn't hurt me, but the silencer.
(3) I must remain true to myself.
