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?

                              So bittersweet,
                              This tragedy
                              Won't ask for absolution;
                              This melody,
                              Inside of me,
                              Still searches for solution.
                              A twist of faith,
                              A change of heart
                              Cures my infatuation.
                              A broken heart, 
                              Provides the spark
                              For my determination.
