Why can’t they say it properly? 12 Comments Posted on December 12, 2015 Too many times I have heard this word and it makes me cringe every time. There are others that offend my ears as well but this one seems to be my “nails on the chalkboard” word. What word makes you crazy when it’s mispronounced?

That word is definitely cringe-worthy, Susan. One that bothers me is when ‘asked’ is pronounce like ‘axed.’
Oh yes! I forgot about that one.
or ask instead of askED
Irregardless bothers me. And it’s more accepted now, so much so that it’s not even being caught by spellcheck anymore. Sigh.
Ooh – that’s a good one. It ranks up there with ‘unthaw’.
Unthaw sounds like a great word. A true massacre, you should suggest it to Tony as a Shapeshifter prompt!
Lol…that’s a great idea!
That’s funny. This is petty, but my soon-to-be ex would always say “stint” instead of “stench”. Didn’t matter how many times I explained it. I’m sure there are others but this is all my tired brain is giving me tonight 🙂
I can see how that would make you crazy!
The ‘word’ Physicality!! – That drives me bonkers hahahaha
It is definitely nails on the chalkboard worthy!
