My wife called my attention to me saying warshed instead of washed.  It's a southern thing.  I have agents who leave a voice-mail saying realaty instead of realty, another southern thing.....

If San Diego can mispronounce it's own neighborhoods and mountains: Kearny Mesa (Kerny instead of Karny) in 92111 and Cowles Mountain (Cowls instead of Coals) 92120 both named after famous historical figures. If this whole country mispronounces Tokyo (To-Key-oh instead of To-kyo) and Karaoake (kerry-o-key instead of Kara-o-kay), I imagine local wild life is possible too.

The ways I hear people pronounce my state (Oregon) sometimes makes me feel like fingers on a chalkboard.  But is that really something to be concerned about?  As long as we communicate, isn't that what really matters?

It's a rare pleasure to engage someone articulate, with an extensive vocabulary and solid grasp of the English language.
Did I mention rare?
Okay. It hardly ever happens.
Now you know why I speak in song lyrics.

Babble, burble, banter
Bicker bicker bicker
