100 Words Almost Everyone Mispronounces by American Heritage Dictionaries
Book DescriptionHave you ever been told that a certain word you have been using is correctly pronounced in a different way? And what about those words with more than one pronunciation - does it matter which one you use? Will your pronunciation sound silly? "100 Words Almost Everyone Mispronounces", settles the score on 100 controversies and misconceptions about words with difficult or slippery pronunciations. These words are tongue twisters of a different kind. Each word is presented in dictionary format, with a note explaining the pronunciation problem, how it arose, and why it is controversial. Here are but a few of the questions this book answers: Does the word dour rhyme with sour or tour? Which syllable is properly stressed in harass and desultory? Is there a final ay sound in cadre, forte, and lingerie? Why do people put an extra syllable in words like mischiev(i)ous and triath(a)lon? Should it bother us when presidents and generals say nucular?
