10 Words You Mispronounce That Make People Think

Think you say athlete, nuclear, or candidate correctly? For the sake of the English language, double-check to make sure.

As for how to accurately pronounce the pronunciation “library”, “February”, “arctic”, we will not waste time on classes in elementary school, but discussing the library, the first “r”, it is very likely that your friends and colleagues are laughing over their backs.
I will not annoy you in a lecture which said that some words that you actually use are not words. If you use words like “snuck,” “brang,” or “irregardardless” (none of them is a real word), you cannot solve your problem.
I do this to provide a rudimentary form of assistance in terms of correct pronunciation of common words that appear in your daily life. These hints will not block transactions with interviews or dates of employment (especially the “date” scenario), but if misinformation was a potential wound on your armor, you The problem will soon be resolved.
So, in order for you to be sufficiently knowledgeable about your language, people on the Internet, see the 10 most important words you need to learn to pronounce.
1. Athlete
  • Incorrect pronunciation: ath – a – leet
  • Correct pronunciation: ath – leet
This can be especially useful at the Summer Olympics, but this is a very valuable lesson for the sporting season. This applies to “athletes” and any derivatives (vials, triathlon, decalons, etc.). Honestly, it’s also sad that we need to point this out. There is no vowel between “h” and “l” in any of these words. It never happened. Just like a dream will die.
2. Escape/espresso/et cetera
  • Incorrect pronunciation: ex – cape / ex – presso / ex – set – err – uh
  • Correct pronunciation: ess – cape / ess – presso / ett – set – err – uh
Yes, this is a 3 to 1 deal, but this is because it is quite common and can be changed very easily. For some reason, we are obsessed with changing “s” to “x” if we follow the sound of “e” in English. Please call me on the Exxon training method. These words are pronounced explicitly. Let’s respect that.
In addition, if you master the master of “espresso” and “and so on”, children in fairy tales really respect you – do you need further motivation?
3. Nuclear
  • Incorrect pronunciation: nuke – you – lerr
  • Correct pronunciation: new – clee – err
Well, this is 2012, but the president has a president who pronounces him correctly, but it still suffers from the word somehow. Like most of the words on this list, “nuclear” is written the same way as is pronounced.
4. Prescription/prerogative
  • Incorrect pronunciation: purr – scrip – shun / purr – ogg – uh – tiv
  • Correct pronunciation: pre – scrip – shun / pre – rogg – uh – tiv
I overlook the fact that many people do not seem to think exactly about the true definition of the last word (I spoke a conversation where people strangely replaced “privileges” with the words “agenda”, I had some). It sounds to ignorance in the arena of Rums. In both of these words, “r” is preceded by “e”. Please understand this fact correctly. I apologize.
5. Utmost
  • Incorrect pronunciation: up – most
  • Correct pronunciation: utt – most
With a strange twist, people actually changed the pronunciation to make the word too significant and reflect its definition. Yes, “highest” is synonymous with “maximum” (the vertical hierarchy of a particular type of Mount Olympus and the term with the word “top”), is this the second symbol? He is still “t”.
6. Candidate
  • Incorrect pronunciation: can – uh – dett
  • Correct pronunciation: can – da – dett
The study of this word will help at least make the educated sounds in your violent political discussions when we enter the elementary level thoroughly. I can not explain it more easily than once a second-grade teacher said: “You always want a good candidate for a candy date, it’s cute and simple.
7. Sherbet
  • Incorrect pronunciation: sherr – berrt
  • Correct pronunciation: sherr – bet
This was, ultimately, one of the words that the crusaders should have abandoned for justice, since the spread of ignorance, so that the dictionary can now be listed as capable of accepting erroneous pronunciation. However, “Sherbet” has only one “r”. No matter how wonderful the taste of the rainbow is, there is only one “r”.
8. Awry
  • Incorrect pronunciation: aww – ree
  • Correct pronunciation: uh – rye
Until recently, I could not even think of a situation when someone had distorted this word. I always thought it was very simple. But I talked about three different people – in the world of conversational radio, he will not say it wrong in a few months.
It is similar to the mechanism that allows people to speak in an educated manner. Do you see what I did there?
9. For all intents and purposes
  • Incorrect pronunciation: “for all intensive purposes”
  • Correct pronunciation: “for all intents and purposes”
Yes, I’m a little deceived (note that the phrases and words are not the same for posterity), but this is still a very common mistake of pronunciation. In a public forum
“Intensive” is an absolute word, but what most people are trying to do is simply intentional. There are no comments to the rumors that I often use the wrong pronunciation as a young person.
10. Often
  • Incorrect pronunciation: off – ten
  • Correct pronunciation: off – en
I haven’t come across this yet, if the red flag “I’m wrong to say something” is our language. This word and its theory of evolution in American linguistics can themselves be a cultural study.
For a while, no one knew that he was “silent.” This vile warning has been in school for many years. But the best thing is for someone to express it as the best grammatical symbol, since I decided that the abbreviation is necessary to convert the “I” into one word. Quiet “t”! “It was a glorious day.
But this pleasure was in the end. At some point, the rational people of the planet decide to turn the buffet table at a banquet for reasonable hope and encourage you to say “often” again.
I do not know whether it was caused by the desire of the original people to resist the rules of our world or the collective hatred of everything connected with the creation. But now, perhaps, the most frequent language speed shock in a hyperbolic story. And I would like to take responsibility for restoring balance.
