...also it just clicked in that it's definitely not pronounced post - hu - mor - us - lee. But I also don't care because there's a decent chance I'll never use that word in conversation - ever - and the proper pronunciation sounds stupid anyway :p

OOOOOH, see I'm french as well. As a second language, but I am from Quebec. It must be a french thing. Because I always pronounce the L and I do say 'sw-ord' as well. :p

 

So now that we've established that we both speak french, let's talk about all the damn words these English people pronounce wrong. Terrace, poutine, ferrero rocher, stores (ie Arden), places (ie Montreal). 

Hon hon oui oui poutine  :canada:

On another note, I kinda am at Montreal right now. You must be a psychic, or you live there, maybe.
*Look over the windows suspiciously and close the curtains*  :ninja:

 

Why is everybody pronouncing "Cache" as Ca-chay? I can understand catch, but cachay? o.o

 

Edit: Also, speaking of chocolate, Toblerone. 'nuff said.

Not sure, but maybe it's related to words like passé or other non-english words with the é at the end that were adopted into english conversation. Just a shot in the dark, really.

 

Edit: Apparently "cache" is based of the french word "cacher", which would be cash-ay. Guess maybe people intuitively connect it to looking like a french word and imagine the accent is there when it isn't? Especially since "cash" exists and is a different word, I guess people assume "cache" must require pronunciation of the e.

No idea, it's the only way I've ever heard it. That's how everyone says it here.

The neopets words I have never said aloud, because I am totally confident about most aspects of my life, but the fact that I played neo for years is absolutely not one of the them. So this is how I say them in my head, I think. Because I haven't even thought of them for years.

 

Grarrl - Garl (like carl cuz I am trashy)
SuAP - SUE-App
Pteri   - Terry (like pterodactyl, dont pronounce the P right?)
Kadoatery- I don't think I have ever even said this one in my head--so idk. suck it. Kad-OH-aaa-tery?
Illusen - ILL-Lue-Sen
Jhudora  - Jew-DUR-a (dunno why I say it like this. dont judge)
Aisha      - AAAA-Sha
Cache    - Cash (me ouside) I used to say cash-ay when I was <13

Posthumously    -  post-HUGH-muss-lee
Hyperbole      -  Hi-PER-bowl-ee
Buried         -  Barry'd

I am second guessing myself on that one. The first part is def Jew- but now i can't remember if I said 'dora' (like a normal person) or dura (like a freak who cant read)

Hahhaaha! I'm from Montreal and my famjam is there so I go back about twice a year. I moved across the country a few years ago, though. :p

(Or maybe I'm stalking you. Don't look behind that bush outside your window)

LOL. I don't know why they pronounce it like that. And when I correct people when they Mon-treal as opposed to Mun-treal, they always get offended. 'Don't tread on muh incorrect English pronounciation of words from a different language'.

I know some people who pronounce New York as Nyu Yoyk. It does bother me to an extent but I ended up laughing it off in my mind because it is so weird sounding.

Also Long Islanders (southern island of NY) say Lawn Guyland and I also laugh.

Apparently posthumous/posthumously is pronounced like pahst - hu - mus - lee. Not even post - hu - mus - lee. According to online pronunciations.

Yeah, I like the "post" version better. But in any case, there is definitely no R sound in it. Posthumorously just sounds like a day when anti-jokes reign supreme.

See, I originally read the word playing TF2 because there's a thing you can add to your weapon to track "posthumous kills", aka kills you get while you're dead, so skim reading it as posthomourous almost made sense.
