Ten Words That Most Michiganders Say Incorrectly [VIDEO]
I can honestly say that I'm guilty of most of these. Are you?
I don't think it's because I don't know how to pronounce them properly, I really think it's more of it being just the way we talk. Being on the air now, I am programmed to think about the proper pronunciation of different words. For example...one big radio thing is the letter "W". Most people say "dubbayou". I said that my whole life until I went to radio school and was trained to pronounce it as it's supposed to be "double-you". It's something most people will never care about either, but I cringe when I hear it said incorrectly now. I KNOW I'm guilty of "yoosta" and "cloze" but NEVER EVER "melk"! That just sounds disgusting to me. Are there any more words you can think of?
