Here Are 79 Words You’ve Been Saying Wrong the Whole Time

Do you get frustrated when people say “ex cetera” when they should be saying “et cetera,” or “mis-pro-nounce-i-a-tion” rather than “mis-pro-nunce-i-a-tion?” Well don't get too worked up, because there might be words you're saying incorrectly, too!

Thankfully, John Green took to mental floss to clear up some of the most commonly mispronounced words in the English language — along with a few of those words that we “borrowed” from other languages. (Note: Regarding the word “irregardless”: it is included in some dictionaries — but like John, most consider it slang and suggest you use “regardless.”)
