Pro·nun·ci·a·tion

Being a wordsmith of sorts, it really bothers me when people pronounce words wrong. For example:
  • sekent instead of second
  • acrost instead of across
  • backwards instead of backward
  • forwards instead of forward
But, I love to say 'shore' instead of 'sure'. Hypocritical, I think.

I hear ya. Rather, I hear you. :) I think we're word snobs. But that's okay. I'm going to start a section on my blog about misspellings or incorrect use of words. Stay tuned.

When I hear cousint instead of cousin, it makes me crazy.

Lovely post.
