It's LibRary! There's an R in there! (Read 694 times)

    Oh, it drives me nuts!  I know that books are pretty much on their way out, and we've all got e-readers and tablets now, but it still makes me crazy to hear someone leave the R out when they speak of a collection of books.  There is no such thing as a lie-berry; the word is library, and I'm sure your kindergarten teacher told you that a long long time ago.  I just heard someone say this at work, and since I can't rant out loud at them, I decided to rant here.  I think I am going to have to cross breed some berries just to patent the lie-berry!

     

    What mispronunciation drives you crazy?


    And in the end...

      While it used to irk me, I actually grew quite found of ol' GWs 'Nuc-u-lar' pronunciation...

          This thread is rediculous.

            Now that I think about it... how do you pronounce FebRuary?  Hm?

                              My kids keep listening to "Justin Beaver".  **shudder**

                              The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
                              Both wrong and right, our memories. 
                              The whispering before we sleep,
                              Just one more thing that you can't keep.

                              Our favorite place we used to go,
                              The warm embrace that no one knows.
                              The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
                              But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.
