In the past week, I've heard the following words mangled:
  • epitome (not pronounced EPY TOME, BBC I'm looking at you!)
  • ominous (the CTG was not OM NEE US, senior midwife)
  • heinous (that one was in the paper yesterday, written as HAINESS)
  • denigrated (the word is not DEGENERATED - that makes the sentence make no sense whatsoevah)
It cracks me up to hear and see people struggle with big words. If you're not sure, then pls don't use them.

Says the girl who famously said CHARGIN not chagrin, and OWN VIOLATION not volition :).
