My teacher in a college-level course routinely says "pronounciation." The irony is built right in!

2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
My exhusband says "toe let" for "toilet." And he's got the kids saying it, too!

Penalized....
sigh....

It's not

PEN (as in a writing tool)-AL-IZED


Its PENAL (as in penal colony)- IZED.

Sheesh!
Doh! That Olive Garden commercial were they call it "The Saghetti platter".

Unless you're under ten "Saghetti" is just wrong.
Not sure if this has already been said but...when people intend to say "stigma" and they say "astigmatism" instead. Often they use both words interchangeably.

Goodbye, cruel words: English. It's dead to me.

The English language, which arose from humble Anglo-Saxon roots to become the lingua franca of 600 million people worldwide and the dominant lexicon of international discourse, is dead. It succumbed last month at the age of 1,617 after a long illness. It is survived by an ignominiously diminished form of itself.

'Take ONE in a morning'

Nonononono, it should be 'Take ONE in the morning'!

You wouldn't put it as 'Take ONE in a night'

I'm not a grammar/spelling nazi but those really bug me.

Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
As a expat New Yorker, I can't stand hearing people refer to prosciutti as "proshoot", capicola as "cappykohl" etc. The last letter is not silent!

I call it Soprano Italian, because Tony always butchers the names of the delicatessen meats (bad pun, I know) and I'm fairly certain that's where people picked up this incredibly annoying habit.

All this food talk is making me salivate for zeppoles, which are nonexistent here : (
