Fine. So maybe it *is* a bit trivial . . .

If I have to hear this mispronounced *one more time* I just don't know what I'll do.  Set fire to something probably.
 
It's eTsy.  Not eSty.
 
Seriously, people--learn to sound things out properly!!!!!

"Larnix" and "Realator" are my favorites.
I heard a clip today on NPR in which an interviewee said "scrutination" instead of scrutiny. A whole nother thing, but still.

Kinda scary that people can't tell the difference between "ts" and st". Maybe next time you should ask them where they got those panst or if they're living in the pats.

And just how the heck does Brett Favre get away pronouncing his name "FARVE"? Shouldn't he, of all people, realize the stupidity of that.........

"ask them where they got those panst" made me laugh out loud--literally : )
