jaguars

This one gets me due to the football team and all the announcers pronouncing it incorrectly (in my opinion)


When referring to the animal: "Jag - wahrs"

When referring to the car: "Jag - you - ers"

Southerners can't pronounce mirror or rural. Or any of the seven "dees" of the week - winzdee and sa'ardee especially.

coincidence

co - in - side - nse

if you say "co in sid ense" you are pronouncing it wrong. Things coincide, they don't coinsid.
