It turns out it is not pronounced as we thought.
Languages are complicated. You might think that a word is pronounced the way it is written, but more often than not, we are completely wrong in that regard. I can’t remember a word that I’ve pronounced wrong on the top of my head, but I am sure that I’ve done it many times. And it is always as embarrassing as it sounds.
Usually, you realise that you are pronouncing the word wrong when someone corrects you in front of a bunch of people which is not fun to say the least. So today we look at Twitter users describing the words whose correct pronunciations alluded them for so long.
