I hear the latter a lot at work.
Eye-boo-pro-fen?

Oh. I say eye-byu-pro-fen. Like kyoo-pon, which I also say. Its not a koo-pon. Its also a roohf (roof, not a ruhf) and a crown (crayon). Never have I said cray-on.

I get told I have a weird kind of accent sometimes. I believe it now lol.

I know that the correct way of pronouncing it is koo-pon, but half the time when I hear people say it this way, they sound like pretentious jerks. I don't know why. But it strikes me as obnoxious when pronounced correctly.
I always thought cyu-pon sounded more pretentious, or southern.

I had to look it up. Coo is first, with cyu secondary.

-Artic for Arctic
-Sherbert for Sherbet
-Smelt for Smelled (biggest pet peeve ever. To "smelt" is to melt metal. I'm pretty sure your nose can't melt metal... or a smelt is a type of fish)

Generally, horrible mispronounced medical terms. One of my instructors pronounced something really horribly the other day, but I can't remember what it was. But it was one of those words where you just change the root to get a different word, like "myocardium" to "pericardium."

Haha, RCC, it figures!

Today, my stats professor pronounced the word "contractor" like "kin-TRACTOR" about 15 times. I guess it's not a mis-pronounciation so much as odd emphasis. It was still annoying though! I kept looking around to see if anyone else was taking notice! They weren't.

By the way, SaraNoH:

smelt
verb
a simple past tense and past participle of smell.
It does sound funny, though.
