.... this thread is the child of the moog thread. few things annoy me more than when somebody corrects my speech by telling me that something I pronounce the way the majority of the world pronounces it, is wrong. "uh hem... that's actually pronounced...." ie. moog is pronounced "moag" not "moog". seeing as it's silly that such a thing would annoy me so much, i feel it's time i get past it. i therefore wish to start this thread of words that the world pronounces incorrectly! my 1st contribution: neal peart pronounced "peert" not "pert".
