That's not a real word!

Did you all know that there's no longer an "arra" in the alphabet? It used to come after "Q" and before "S".


LMAO
I think most of the things already listed are examples of regional accents. Like how my mother (who is from Ohio) says, "worsh" instead of "wash."

I was watching Tiny and Toya the other day and I could have sworn Toya said something about how much she liked the "clotheses" in the girls' clothing store. But maybe I misheard. lol

"I seen" is never correct. NEVER! Please.Stop.Using.it.

It's either "I've seen" or "I saw".

My husband absolutely drives me crazy with nother, as in, "That's a whole nother story!" I hear "a whole nother" all the time!

People who use the word "like" instead of say or said. As in: And then I was like blah blah blah, and he was like blah blah blah, and I'm like blah blah blah and then we were like blah blah blah.

Instead of: And then I said blah blah blah, and he said blah blah blah and I said blah blah blah and then we said blah blah blah.

When did like substitute for the verb "to say?" Drives me nuts.

Here are a few that I know:

Something that cracks me up is when someone is named Anthony and someone calls the person ANFERNEE.

Or when people call Halle Berry... "Holly Burry" ROFL!

Oh and I don't know if anyone said it already but when people say "Wadda" instead of water.

Reca instead of record or reca sto instead of record store

Ablum instead of album

Ammalance instead of ambulance

Mir instead or mirror

Far instead of fire

Git instead of get
Oh here's a few others... (I am up late watching True Blood..so I got all the jokes)

When someone says, "Imma takenin tell her..." or "Gurl.. I tooken told..."

or Axed instead of asked

skrait instead of straight

scrawlberry instead of strawberry

"Up da skreet" instead of "Up the street"

Spaghitti instead of Spaghetti

Oh here's one.. I told my husband once:
"Don't touch the fan.. I want it on OSKILLATE"...
He was says, "WHAT ? "
I say, "I said I want it on OS-KILL-ATE!"
My husband chuckles and goes: "You are really cute..but um it's oscillate..the "c" is not a K and it's silent.. it's ooooosssillate babe.. oooooooooooosssilllate"...

I fell on the floor laughing! Funniest thing in the world!
Ha! I read this whole thread starting on page 2.
The whole time I'm reading Hakim's posts thinking..
"Man, I feel so at home..it's like the good ole days of my childhood." Then I read this:


I live in Washington, DC..

Okay, there's "notation" and there's "make a note" or something "has been noted".

But........is "notate" even a word? As in, a verb? It NEVER sounded right to me.

The person in question is always "notating" something; either that or saying "applicable" as "uh-PLICK-uh-ble". Both of them sound "off" to me.

---"murk" for milk
---"strumps" for shrimp
---"sub-strip-tion" for prescription
---"brought" instead of bought
---"geriatric" for generic
---"wall-MOKS" for Wal-Mart
At my old job, somebody started saying mediums as the plural for medium and pretty soon it caught on as one of those trendy words like verbiage, robust and straw man. Unless we're talking about psychics, the plural for medium is media.

And that reminds me of my other pet peeve: saying verbage instead of verbiage. And really, why not say language if you don't know how to pronounce it?

I know it drives people crazy, but it sounds fake to explain a feeling of fun-er with 'more fun'.

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

Yea, some do pronounce the "th" with "f" in speech. Like fink instead of think.
