Get it Right!

No one likes getting corrected. I often cringe when I hear someone say a word incorrectly. I am also guilty of doing this unthinkable thing, more often than I care to admit. One way to avoid embarrassing mistakes is by articulating words right the first time. These vocabulary words are some of the worst (and most popular) offenders, so no shame if you've been saying "GIF" wrong this entire time.

Did you know the word mischievous only has three syllables, not four? It's not ‘mis-CHEEV-ee-us’ - it's just ‘MIS-chiv-us’. Another great one is Mauve. While most people say ‘mawve,’ the correct pronunciation is actually ‘moave’--as in, rhymes with ‘grove’. The other day I heard someone say ‘mave’.
