  47. Malapropism and wrong pronounciation of words, names (especially in English) is probably the strongest of my pet peeves. Literally makes me cringe. But I've come to understand that it is not our native tongue. Plus the "whites" don't bother to speak our languages correctly so WTH?

    HAHAHA

    Don't mind me Stella, I'm a linguist and a perfectionist. Bonjour Γ  tous!
