Here's one that's going to shock a lot of people.

It's not "ay-moral" or "ay-sexual". It's "a" as in "cat" and "jack". Look at the word "agnostic". The prefix is "a" added on to "gnostic". Your don't pronounce it "aygnostic".

Go ahead and look it up in the dictionary. They'll probably list both as correct, only because so many people say it the wrong way, that it's just been put into the English language to make it easier.

I always like saying "I live in the "state" of misery!"


Agreed, I was going for that, added the extra "s" for effect.

born and raised in the state of missery, Mizery, misery, or however it should be spelled in here. Moved away and didn't have that excuse to be miserable anymore so we moved back.... :p

My wife can't say Crayons. It sounds like she's saying Crowns, it drives me crazy

I always get annoyed when people say "Ideal" when they really mean "Idea"...such as "I got a great ideal."

Not sure if I'm right or not but my girlfriend and I always argue about this:

Is the correct phrase...

"Every Since"

or

"Ever Since"...


I'm for the latter.

I actually like this one, but KI-ote instead of "KI-O-Tee"

Are you originally from Macon? I had to unlearn every one damned one of those. :D

The one part of my native accent I can't shake is drawing out the AAAWL sounds in words. For example, I don't shop at the mall - I shop at the MAAAAWWL. :banghead:

I've heard a couple of people say "everwhat" and "everwhere" instead of whatever and wherever.

The 'ah' on the end of Missouri is pretty common. I actually had someone tell me if you are from Missouri, you pronounce it "ah". I told them you only pronounce it that way if you don't know how to read and talk.

Pronouncing the 's' in Illinois and the second one in Des Moines is pretty common too.


Kind of related pet peeve: When someone makes a sign for something and capitalizes all of the letters but the "i". For instance: I'M AN iDIOT!

Maria Antonia does that on KMBC 9. She speaks normal accentless English until she says her name. Annoying as hell.
