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

This is driving me crazy: it's in-SURE-ance, right?
Or is IN-s'rance an acceptable variant?

The correction pronunciation is in-SURE-ance. I never heard it pronounced the other way.

My exhusband says "toe let" for "toilet." And he's got the kids saying it, too!

Good, thanks. I was listening to an otherwise excellent podcast where they said IN-s'rance, with the accent on the first syllable, and it really bothered me.

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.

Full article here.
I had to share that on Facebook.
Haha! Me too.

We have a file at work that we fill in with the hours we worked, when ever I'm filling it in someone always asks if they can borrow it. It annoys me so much. How can you borrow it?

Also people at work have been labelling medication as this:

'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.

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 : (

You'll like this. Bensonhurst Spelling Bee

After I lived in Italy for awhile (granted it was in the northern portion and they may have a different dialect) I hated coming back to the states to hear capicola called "gabbagole" and ricotta "rigutt". It sets my teeth on edge.

Apparently the last vowel is silent, if you are from Sicily. A lot of the Italian-Americans around here are from there, and they tell me that's how they pronounce the words.
