The Late Movies: Fun With Mispronunciation
So there's a YouTube channel called Pronunciation Book, which "shows you how to say various words in American English." It's an extremely simple format: display a word or phrase, then say it aloud three times. The format was simple, and yeah, maybe it helped some people. For example: Jake Gyllenhaal. But then along came the much, much better Pronunciation Manual, which appropriated the existing format and parodied it with hilariously incorrect pronunciations -- including often cutting off the third repetition mid-word. (See, for example, Pronunciation Manual's version of Jake Gyllenhaal.) So now, to celebrate wrongness, I bring you fifteen of my favorite mispronounced words and names. If you like these, believe me, there are more.
If you're unfamiliar with the real pronunciation, check this out.
