On Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? last night, both Mike Hosking and his contestant repeatedly pronounced anemone “an enemy”.
They did it so often I had to check that it wasn’t meant to be pronounced that way.
This inspires me to compile a list of the Most Mispronounced Words in English. Right up there near the top would have to be pronunciation, which so many pronounce pronounciation.
Maybe the list should be called Mispronounciations?
Vunrable for vulnerable would be up there too.
Feel free to contribute.
