Other annoying ones:
* Jaguar (The cars)... Is it "Jag-war", "Jag-wahr", or "Jag-you-are"? I know know of the commercials I've seen for it uses both the first and third pronunciations... Two announcer voices, one of them using each. I pick the first.

{snip}

* Nuclear... "Noo-clee-arr"... I'm sorry, but "Nuke-you-lar" is just totally unacceptable, and these people need to go back to grammar school. I had so much fun talking about GWB back in the day, because he would mispronounce other words too... Korea, to him, was the "Nuke-yuh-luh puh-nin-shuh-luh"


Where I live, in the armpit of America, the locals like to pronounce Jaguar as "jag-wire". Talk about grating.

The nuclear thing is horrid, too.

Oh, and around here (again, the armpit of America) these people just like to stick an R in wash or Washington. So they pronounce those "warsh" or "Warshington".

Ugh.
