Since going through Catholic school, the nuns made sure we said it correctly with or without the Chicago slang thrown in.

I talk about this all the time, people speak badly most of the time & I just don't care to correct them.

Good God. I hear this wrong on commercials and newscasts and I want to hurl. It is FEB-bRu-a-ry. Spelled like it's said. Omit the first R and you're kicked out of my voice class.

Being conservative with the alphabet letters, only time is when Twitter said you are over the limit... remove one somewhere. I add the "R" the hardest working letter in the entire alphabet right Fred Griffin ?

I didn't know there was an option.  I did a quick check, and it appears that because of the way it is commonly pronounced Feb-u-ary is so common the dictionary started including it?  If they are, it's dumb because lots of words are pronounced differently than their phonetic spelling.

It has never occured to me to spell the word without the "r" or to pronounce it without the "r." But, I suspect the pronounciation is very much a regional issue.
