pronunciation thread


Recommended Posts

ok, I'll just start off with past ones discussed


I say lawyer like this: "law-yer" not "loiyer"


I say "yall" instead of "you all", "you guys", "yous guys", etc.


I say "gross-ree store" instead of "gro-cer-ee store" or "supermarket"


I say tennis shoes (pronounced tenishooz) or just shoes instead of "sneakers"

I say "soda, coke, etc"....not "pop" - I hate that word


I don't really say "ya'll", i usually say "you guys"


and for some reason, i cannot say the word "humid" for the life of me...i always end up pronouncing it like "whomid"
