    How do you guys feel about Tuesday and schedule for pronunciation?
    Heh, I pronounce it Februry, and I say Twosday but think Tyusday. And it's skedule for me.

    I see you're from the midwest...funny, because so was that instructor I had in college who pronounced the "r" in February (I'm in CA).

    I say "Tuesday" with the "tue" part being like the word "hue". I also say "dew" to rhyme with "mew" not "moo".

    I do the typical American pronunciation of schedule - with a "k" sound.

    "Tyusday"

    "skedule" (but a lot of Canadians say "shedule"... that never caught on for me)

    Also... what about process? I say "process" as it's written, not like "pracess"

    irregardless annoys me SO MUCH. It's either "regardless" or "irrespective", not irregardless with two negatives!!! AHHHH

    regardless of what happens = irrespective of what happens

    My philosophy prof last semester would keep saying irregardless... oh god...

    A different type everyday - so no need to type me anymore. But feel free to enjoy the sound of your own asscrack.

    I am a staunch supporter of your ability to stanch the flow of blood from a wound (because I'm too squeamish to look at it)...
    Not according to this and this. They are both perfectly legitimate in the above sentence. Stanch (more commonly used in the US apparently) is derived from the Anglo French estancher while staunch is derived from the Middle English staunchen. Both of those meant to stop or restrict the flow of blood from a wound.

    I hate it when people pronounce "humble" as "umble."

    I also hate "an historic event," though I know it's technically correct/acceptable. It sounds like you're being unnecessarily snooty.

    Everytime I hear the word "staunch," I think of this:

    "Cut and dry" should be "cut and dried."

    i once received an email from someone that contained

    'it's a doggy dog world'

    it took me a while to realise he meant 'it's a dog-eat-dog world.' it was quite something.

    it's definitley Toosday to me... and Feb-you-ary as well... and skedj-youl as well and I'm a midwesterner...

    One that I always run up against that really annoys me (for multiple reasons!) is No Solicitating... I always want to ask people who say that if they went to the GW Bush school of grammar and the Dick Cheney school of empathy :steam:

    These are all true for me too, and I'm from the Northeast.
