Z-clipped: omeganuepsilon: It's got that redneck hillbilly stigma.Now that depends on whether it's used as an adverb or an adjective..That there donkey over yonder... = HillbillyMy lady in yonder meadow = British homosexual (NTTAWWT)Alassra: Pittsburghese is a plague on the English language.Do people there also "outen the lights"? Or drop "to be", as in "the dishes need warshed"?
skinink: Asshole is a word I have a problem pronouncing. It usually comes out sounding like "brother-in-law".
HotWingAgenda: My biggest pet peeve is chipotle, though. It's the name of a major chain restaurant, for crying out loud. The L comes AFTER the T.
HillshirefarmsGOMEAT: "Salmon", pronounced "SAL-MON" drives me nuts! I have a friend who says "aggavated" instead of "aggRavated." Ugh.

omeganuepsilon: ChildOfBhaal: omeganuepsilon: Hand Banana: I've seen quite a few people saying and writing it as prolly and it drives me crazy.I say "howdy", "yall", "yonder" "prolly", almost as a joke, because language is fun to play with and it never hurts to be ridiculus on occasion. It's when people only speak that way and are incapable of sounding intelligent, that's when it's gotten ridiculous.What's wrong with yonder? Perfectly good, correctly pronounced word.Good, not so much.Yes, it's a valid word, as many are, that people still would rather not use or have said to them. It's got that redneck hillbilly stigma. It's not just the accent, it's the sound of the word. A vast amount of people that say it sound like they don't like to read berks, not even gersberms[i0.kym-cdn.com image 402x604]
kellythecat: What light through yonder window breaks?/missed the hillbilly memo
thisispete: There are words you read, which you know the meaning of, but you have no idea of the pronunciation. I was slightly disappointed when I saw an art documentary and found Titian is pronounced "Ti-shan" and not "Titty-an". " Paradigm" troubled me for a while, too, until I heard it in a lecture.
Tali: Curse you for the earworm, Subby. /shakes fistI had an ex who used to mispronounce a couple things that irritated the bejeezus out of me. Like 'pseudo' as suede(like the fabric)-oh. Especially funny on a couple of occasions when he was biatching about somebody smarter than him being a "pretentious pseudo-intellectual jerk."One I've noticed from a lot of older folks from up north is 'draw' instead of 'drawer'. "Go get me the scissors from the kitchen draw."
Aluminum Falcon: My ex-supervisor at work would be talking about budgetary concerns and would say something about needing to be careful with what we spend since the end of the "physical" year was June 30. Lolsigh.
