Top Mispronounced Words of 2018

Cameo once asked??“Tell me what’s the word WORD UP!

??I’ll tell you what’s the word, we’ve been mispronouncing a lot of words in 2018.??The language learning app, Babel, has partnered with U.S. Captioning Company to reveal??the 10 most commonly mispronounced names and words this year.

Here are just a few.

??During the U.S. midterm election, incumbent Ted Cruz was challenged for his senate seat in Texas by ??not Bee-toe O’Rourke or Bet O’Rourke but Beto O’Rourke.

??Couldn’t he just go by his real first name Robert and make it easier?

??This one will make you squirm but people were mispronouncing Entomophagy but I don’t blame them.

??Because it means the consumption of insects BY PEOPLE!

??Ummm no thanks, maybe I’ll give veganism a shot.

??Get Out won big at the Oscars, this year and earned star Daniel Kaluuya an Oscar nom but looks as though ??with all the Oscar buzz and award coverage still couldn't get us to say his name correctly.

??Kaluuya was also in the superhero movie Black Panther, that took place in the fictional country of Wakanda ??but what isn’t fiction is the language they used Xhosa, which also the official language ??of Zimbabwe and South Africa.

It’s the click that does the trick.

??And when it comes to pronouncing words correctly, just remember what Mike Myers in a View From The Top said.??"You put the wrong emPHAsis on the wrong syLLAble.”????????????????????????
