Vah-z or vay-ss?
Anyone who says "vay-ss" is stupid, no question.
Bring forth your own issues too.
that the advant-ahj of anchor-ahj stops the break-ahj of boats. Cour-ahj-ous.
*this was supposed to go by the garage one up there ^ it's heroic wit kind of lost now
Which is, obviously, correct.
A bath would be naff.
It annoyed me because I was watching Friends and they were talking about a "vay-ss". Cunts.
just think about that for a minute.
My new PA (who is Canadian) is insisting that people in England say vie-tamin. I have told her this is complete rubbish but am now starting to doubt myself. Also, she is not a colleague, but a co-worker, apparently. The loo is the restroom
It's a bloody minefield!
We say 'vit-a-min'.
"haitch" instead of "aitch"
FUCKING TOTAL UTTER WANKERS OF THE HIGHEST DEGREE. Facts.
People saying mandatory as 'man-date-tory' annoys me.
in women who date Tories.
Blood will spill
Well as long as you hate anyone who puts a 'date' in mandatory.
but yeah, they can burn in a fire of rotting peach
fucking skedule cunts.
I have a feeling going down the school route with schedule was always a valid British pronunciation but it was never as common 100 years ago.
In a shed duel!
Don't even get me started.
first bought it over and marketed it in this country in the late 50s, they named it and promoted it as Expresso. so that's why people do that.
Prevalent: Pree-vay-lent, or Preh-vuh-lunt, or Pruhvay-lunt
Daycore! Have I just invented a hip, new music genre?
but I prefer Deck-or.
Not that the loss of the latter, at least, is worth mourning...
"How would Leo say this?"
fuct if i know. changes, i guess
Pedantic arseholes, it's not as if you don't know what I'm saying.
are you ready for the way i pronounce it?
Not really. I wanna mention how my old headmaster used to say serstifficate when handing out certificates. Even the teachers thought he was a belm.
I've never heard anyone else say serstifficate since. So the question I wanna aks is this: Anyone else heard anyone come out with serstifficate?
Things like that really fuck me off.
I TEXTED him back.
robot as 'roe-bit'
I'm siding with the former camp.
Advertise-ment comes about, like Mandate-ory due to your brain having a hiccup trying to switch out of starting to pronounce the verb form and realising it's the noun or adverbial OR WHATEVER I DON'T CARE YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN form.
Thankfully, I never had to enter any dah-ter when I was there. My current boss sometimes mentions datta. I'm wondering when the right dayter tell him the error of his ways will come.
Datta when dealing with information on a matrix of light emitting diodes and possibly from the future, Day-ta when the information is on some kind of parchment.
or some pronuncation I can't even think of?
it's a word I will never say out loud
Let's just say it was quite an embarrassing moment.
also: es-chew or es-shew?
I think I'm going to pronounce it that way from now on
I remember the first time I said 'pariah' out loud. Luckily it was with a guy who just corrected me with no piss-taking.
(I went with 'parry-ah'...)
"Im from Glasgow"
"Ah, Glase Gowe?"
to pre-prepare for this proe-ject...
What? Fuck off.
Instead of tisHue.
Also my boss says Pacific instead of Specific. This is very annoying.
Prah-gress or proe-gress?
now is that Ameri-cans or Ameri-cuns?
"Pahk that kah in the kah pahk"
I think it's because Bob Dylan speaks that way and he's from Minnesota. I've got family in Boston and that's how they speak. "Ya'shittin' me" and all that.
Never know whether to say either as in 'ee-ther' or 'eye-ther'. I guess I could say either of them.
Well, idk, it's just the way I say it. But it sounds better anyway.
too many people in britain pronounce this like americans do imo
Can be pronounced two ways, pro-NUN-ciation and pro-NOUN-ciation.
