Spinoff: What mispronunciations, or wrong word usages make you cringe?

curlypearlcurlypearl Posts: 11,970Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Liberry for library. It's not a fruit!

FebUary for FebRuary

Fith for Fifth

orry for awry

AX for ask I axed him? You chopped him up?

and of course, I seen instead of I saw.

And I'm probably the only one who cringes at this, but it's not baby mama or baby daddy, it's baby's mama or baby's daddy.

And lastly, pewckle for pickle. Whaaatttt?

    Curlytoast, on my computer your response comes out:

    :P :P :P :P followed by a smiley. What is :P ? Is my monitor just unable to show it correctly?

    Oh, no -- sorry CP. That was me assuming that the punctuation for a smiley-sticking-out-tongue would yield an actual smiley-sticking-out-tongue. Turns out, it doesn't.

    Thanks, CToast.

    Also cringeworthy: I'ma instead of I'm going to, as in:

    I'ma see him tomorrow ... instead of I'm going to see him tomorrow.

    And the constant use of "like" instead of "said" as in:

    ...and then I'm like blah blah blah and then he's like blah blah blah instead of

    ...and then I said blah blah blah and then he said blah blah blah.

    Grrrr. All this tends to happen on buses where I am stranded sitting next to morons gabbing loudly and inanely on their cell phones. And I'm like STFU! but I don't say nuthin. (hee)

    I agree with the ones listed already.

    I overheard a woman talking to her friend in a clothing store about "lingery" — she meant lingerie.

    A friend of mine asked me once if I had a "res-ahyp" for the dish I wanted to make. After I fell out, and dried my tears of laughter, I let her know that it was pronounced res-uh-pee (recipe).

    I cannot STANNDDDDDDD the way some women use the word "female".

    As in, "This female tried to approach my husband in the club last night"........or "Some females cannot stand the way I look"......

    I'm sorry but it grates my nerves to no end.

    I say Feb-You-ary and Fith. LOL
    I am more lenient when it comes to verbal communication.
    I hate seeing "your" for "you're" in written communication. "Your stupid" is hilarious to me.
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    I know. "Female" makes us sound like we're some sort of animal.

    Hey sinistral - you're my lefty twin. How's it going?

    Its funny how different areas use different words. Some of these things that are popular in some places have never been used in others... for example I've heard maybe half the things mentioned on here before, and not the other half. idk I think its funny I guess.

    I hate when people say, "I could care less...."

    NO NO NO NO NO, its "I could NOT care less...". Otherwise, you care a whole lot rather than caring so little you have no caring whatsoever left in you!!!

    Drives me INSANE!!!!:happy2:
    Mix of 3A and 3B
    Wash: Recently changed to using low sulfate shampoos. I love it. My hair needs all residue removed to get any volume.
    Conditioner: Kinky Curly Knot today
    Styler: AG Recoil (I have eliminated everything but AGRecoil. My hair has tons of volume and bounce.)
    In high humidity: a dime/nickle size of gel lightly scrunched on the canopy. FINALLY I found a way that doesn't kill my hair volume.

    +1 to the bolded. SO irritating, I don't even know why. And I think it's probably just me, but atleast more than one person I know always spells "thought" "thaught"...is this a common mistake? Angers me. If you're gonna text, text right. I can handle "u" instead of "you" but with the other things mentioned, grrrrrr.

    I call it "lingery draws" as homage to Wanda on In Living Color. It's a joke for most people, I'd think!

    I can't believe I'm admitting this but A couple weeks ago I heard myself say "I don't got no time to do that" I was like :sad1: then I went home and :study:. I work in a place where grammar isn't a top priority and I fear it's rubbing off. Not that I was ever the best grammertist but I'm not a slouch either.

    Oh lord I grew up saying you'se guys this & you'se want to that. I'm from MI. A few teachers in high school made it their prime directive to get us all to stop saying it that way. It worked :rabbit:

    I don't appreciate that, either. I'm a WOMAN, not a dog. It's just disrespectful.

    I can't get over how many times I've seen "poured" used instead of "pored" in supposedly professional documents...

    "We poured over the evidence for hours." The correct word is "pored".

    "click" instead of "clique"

    "peaked" or "peeked" instead of "piqued"...."My interest was peaked when I saw the closed box." The correct word is "piqued".

    Supposebly instead if Supposedly. Conversate instead of Converse.

    nucular instead of nuclear. I hate that.

    While I know that hair regime may be technically correct, I prefer hair regimen. Hair regime sounds as if your hair is a nation.

    Orientate or orientated instead of orient or oriented. As in "I gradually orientated to my surroundings." Argh!!

    Lately my boyfriend keeps using the word superfluous wrong. He confused it with some fancy word for beautiful so the other day he told me I was so superfluous. I was like :angry1:

    Also if I'm recounting a conversation I am known to use the "I was like, and then she/he was like" but I'm also usually acting it out at same time, gestures and facial expressions etc. I try to weed it out of my usage but it still crops up. Especially when I'm excited or animated.

    Yes, it does, but it's lower-case P, not capital. :p

    As for this thread: "conversate".
    Also, "brung". *Shudder*
