10 Commonly Mispronounced English Words

I was a little worried about including the following article in a blog to you.

I am always on the look out for a good, clear article on pronunciation to bring to your attention, and this one is about 10 commonly mispronounced English words.
I was a little worried as I said about the article, because of the cheeky  heading, but ‘heh’ it’s a good article and I think very helpful.

3 More Commonly Mispronounced English Words

I would have also included the following three commonly mispronounced words:

1) Don’t say: probly, prolly | Do say: probably

Comment: Haplology is the dropping of one of two identical syllables such as the [ob] and [ab] in this word, usually the result of fast speech. Slow down and pronounce the whole word for maximum clarity and to reduce your chances of misspelling the word.

2) Don’t say: pronounciation | Do say: pronunciation

Comment:  “Pronunciation” is among the most commonly mispronounced words. Interesting no?     The ‘u’ in pronunciation is said like ‘u’ as in ‘cup’.

3) Don’t say: filum         Do say: film

Comment: Because of the two consonants together -lm- people often try to insert a vowel.
