this was MY LIFE.
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW MANY WORDS I’VE FUCKED UP
I love running into other people who mispronounce big words because I know I’ve found a fellow autodidact.
don’t ask me about the first time I said the word omnipotent. Just don’t ask.
Mine was eunuch.
those are the ones off the top of my head, but there are more…
Waft, Hermione so many more
Canopic, Hermione, wyvern, cabaret, dirigible, potable, chivalry, tesseract…
Premise is the main one that comes to mind- I was pretty sure it rhymed with demise….
Yes! I still have trouble with words today because of this and yet when certain people take it upon themselves to try and correct me (while in the process trying to make me feel small and inferior), it makes me rage so bad. So what if I can’t get a few words right, just let me be!
