Poll ResultsPoll 707: Are there any words that you habitually pronounce differently to most people around you?
Total votes: 711
There's one word in particular that everyone pronounces differently to me: debauchery. I'd encountered it many times when reading, but the first time I ever heard someone say it I had no idea what the heck word they were trying to say.
They were saying some weird thing like "duh-BAWTCH-ery", when I knew it was actually pronounced "duh-BOUGH-kery".
I have since discovered that apparently everybody except me also pronounces this word wrong!
