The hardest word to pronounce in my vocabulary right now is Maleficent.
You must be drunk, have a lisp and a mouth full of bacon
I realized I had been pronouncing it incorrectly just the other day. I think it sounds better the way I was saying it.
I always mix up Prostate and Prostrate. Leads to some mix ups when requesting massages.
Goop continues to show the world she is a brainless cunt.
TMZ link Compares being bashed on the net to being in war.
Reporter this a.m. called it MAL' efficient
Tehachapi Pass is basically impossible for me to say.
Peter picked a peck of pickled peppers
Hmm, I guess I've been pronouncing it Mal-IF-icent when it should be Mal-EFF-icent?
Enty I hope you got your spider bite medically checked out. If your tongue is numb, and brain function impaired I suggest you see an acupuncturist stat
She's a fucking brainless bitch. As a mom with 3 boys in the Air Force, one of whom just returned from Qatar, I'd like to personally kick her in the teeth.
I don't care how it's pronounced. Angie freaks me out (not in a good way) whenever I see her in it. Two hours of that would likely kill me
I'm black so the word ASK doesn't quite roll off the tongue.;^)
Fancyscreenname : where I come from, it's aks. And we're mostly whiteys.
I refuse to watch this movie. She was my favorite villain & Angie just ruined my childhood memories.
Made-up words are always the worst to pronounce.
Hard for Brad Pitt too since getting punched
WahooHubby and I were just talking about this two days ago…I can't say "anonymity"… it comes out annoniminity or some garbled mess no matter how hard I try. He thought is was cute. Still kinda struggle with "musician"…kinda comes out as magician.
idk I think she is perfect for Maleficent…….fits her quite nicely
My friend from England insists I pronounce aluminum wrong. She says it's al-YOU-min-eeum instead of ah-loo-min-um.
LOL @ Fancy. "Lemme axe you a question."
But how can that be? Just ask her mother, Goops' perfect in every way. We're just jealous posers who wish we were as wonderful as she was.
@GatorGirl. I'll hold your coat and kick her bodyguards in the shins.
I hate the word Chipotle.ijs
I just gotta say it…GatorGirl, you and your sons fucking rock. May they always be kept safe and out of harm's way.
Gayeld's got your coat, but I'll hold your earrings when you pull 'em out.
@Melissa. I know this isn't a funny topic, but I was a kid in the Merced area when that bus load of kids from Chowchilla was kidnapped and buried. We laughed so loud over all the reporters trying to pronounce Chowchilla. Chow-chill-ah. Not Chi-chee-ah.
Inauguration. Cannot, for the life of me, pronounce it correctly.
Tuolumne. Two-wall-ah-me. Ygnacio. Ig-nah-see-oh. Visalia. Vy-sail-ya.
@Seven. She's wrong. ;-Þ
@ Gayeld see the thing is I know how it should be pronounced, but when I attempt to say it my mouth just will not cooperate. Thankfully I can just say "the Grapevine" and most California people know what I mean.
@Riven. For me it's always hardest when the word is in front of me. My brain can't always make the connect between how it sounds and how it looks. Especially all those Spanish and Indian places around CA.
Gywneth Paltrow is a fucking moron. I cannot believe the shit she spews out of her mouth!! Right after Memorial Day too. She's such a heartless, self-centered person. I can't imagine her loving anyone but herself.
YOgurt vs yoGurt. Always confusing in the skippy home.
Hubby can't say ridiculous or Kanye. Lol
It's REAL-TOR. Not REAL-A-TOR. Drives me NUTS. Especially when I hear REALTORS mispronounce it.
My daaghter still says callerpitar . Love it
Not if you worked for Disney for 15 years.
I get celebs names wrong in conversations all the time:
Naya Rivera – Naya Riviera.
Irina Shayk – Irina Shake.
Gwyneth Paltrow – Bitch.
Ok, that last one might actually be quite apt.
LOL Fancy..I grew up in the south and AXE was used a lot along with Lie-berry..
Oh Goop..Just STFU and you might make it another day.
God punished me for being one of those people who would always correct someone's pronunciation. After my stroke, I have trouble getting certain syllables to roll off the tongue and I am always mispronouncing words now.
Karma is hard, Y'all
@procrastibatorsame here (axe).lolNot ME though…
I lime the food there tho. – to annoy my friend I call it "Chip ol tee" (rather than Chi pote lay" )
For me it's "wheel barrel". Rear barrow. Actually kind of works in the context I use it.
@Gayeld The most butchered Central Valley towns I've heard are Visalia and Tulare
@Nicole. Add Chowchilla and I'd say you've got the top three. Although, I've heard people pronounce Modesto and Merced wrong too.
I keep pronouncing vegetables as cheeseburgers. I say pizza instead of fruit. I blame it on a lisp.
I'm the same @sugarbread I try to pronounce water but instead I say beer!!
Male-Fish-ent. That's the way I pronounced it.
Who named that stupid character anyway?
Think of a hatchet.
Signal/single. Prostate/prostrate. Abdominal/abominable. My brain knows the difference but my mouth doesn't.
Left/right. My mouth knows the difference but my brain doesn't.
I have a friend that can't pronounce toilet.
I hope to, one day, correctly pronounce superfluous. Not betting on it, but a chick can dream.
My Mum can't say 'VietNAmese' she says 'Vietnese'….makes me giggle…every…time…
@Seven, aluminum was one of mine, too!
I'm hearing impaired and had years of speech therapy but some words…grrr!
That must have been doubly interesting when you were drinking, Meanie .-)
OMG that sounds like my FIL, Meanie!Window=winderDishes=deeshesFish=feesh Wash=warshEvery time, I'd interrupt with, "Spell that!" It never happened… Just got me the stink eye.
It was very inner-resting!
Low Key, your FIL sounds like some of the folks from Mom's side: Allegheny mountains!
My SO's dad from Iowa says "Warshington", cracks me up every time.
NEW YORK RANGERS BABY!!
I can say it but I totally don't understand who they are marketing this movie to. No way my niece or nephews are going to go see it because it will scare the bejesus out of them, they are first grade, kindergarten. Don't think teens will care, or tweens for that matter. Wonder if Angie's adult fans will care enough about her to go see a fairy tale..she herself said her kid had to be in it because all the other child actors were scared to death of her. The christians aren't going to be loading their kids up to see a story about a witch. I can't figure out what market they are going for but if they are trying for the "Frozen" demographic I think they are misguided.
Ichabod- good thoughts. Perhaps the twilight/ goth crowd?
@Seven, you and your English friend are both correct; the words are spelled differently.
It's aluminum in the US and aluminium in the UK.
The Wikipedia entry has an etymology section that goes into detail if you're interested.
Anyway, that's the least of my worries; the thing that REALLY gets me is how Brits pronounce sixth as sickth. I loathe that (mis)pronunciation.
@Meanie-Appalachian region of Southeast Ohio. Must be a mountain folk thang!
Whinge for whine is the one that gets me… WTF Brits?
