2016-02-10 Rerun commentary: Yes, the Head Death can tell the difference in pronunciation between "weird" and "wyrd".

Supernatural aural semantic parsing ability is one of the perks of the job.

Okay, it's not a great perk, but it's still a perk.

Perk perk perk.

That doesn't even look like a real word any more, does it?

It's an abbreviation of perquisite, but is so common that it's pretty much acceptable as a word in its own right. In fact, I bet you'd have some trouble finding someone on the street who knows what "perquisite" means, even if they're familiar with the word "perk".
