 Hi I'm Dennis Fuller.  Please join me weekdays from 2p to 7p for Continuous Soft Rock on 104.5 The River!


Ten words that most people mispronounce!

There are some words that pretty much everyone mispronounces.  Check out this list from Buzzfeed and see if you (or someone you know) has trouble with any of these! ~Dennis


1. "Mischievous."  You might be saying "miss-CHEEV-ee-us."  But it's supposed to be "MISS-chiv-us."

2.  "Chipotle."  A lot of people think it's "chi-POL-tay."  But it should be "chi-POAT-lay."

3.  "Often."  It rhymes with "soften."  Don't say "OFF-ten."

4.  "Sherbet."  Not "SHER-bert" . . . "SHER-bet."

5.  "Candidate."  You might be used to hearing "CAN-a-dit."  But it's actually "CAN-di-dit."

6.  "Banal."  If you use this word at all, you're probably saying "BAY-nul."  But it's "buh-NAHL."

7.  "Prerogative."  Don't say it like Bobby Brown.  Don't do ANYTHING like Bobby Brown.  The word is "preh-ROGG-uh-tiv."
8.  "Seuss."  As in, Dr. Seuss."  Everyone says "SOOSE," but it's supposed to be "SOICE."  Even the Doctor himself gave up and started accepting the wrong way.

9.  "Bruschetta."  Almost everyone says "bruh-SHETT-uh."  But you should be saying "broo-SKETT-uh."

10.  "GIF."  Don't say "JIFF."  It's "GIFF," with a hard "G."
