People Are Getting Creative When Coming Up With These 53 Pronunciation Suggestions


Let’s face it. Most of us weren’t born great orators who can step onto a barrel and captivate the whole square with their speech like Cicero.


In reality, we can barely pronounce words like isthmus, myriad and… just wait until you get to "otorhinolaryngologist." But some people are doing everyone a public service and suggesting whole new pronunciations for some very popular words.


From Wayne pronounced like Kanye to baseline pronounced like vaseline, I sign up for every one of them. I suspect that Merriam-Webster’s dictionary won’t approve, but hey, language is a living thing and we may as well have some fun with it!
