I’m listening to a podcast and this one guy keeps saying a word incorrectly. The problem is I have heard many people use this odd pronunciation and it must be stopped.
The word is “Britain”. He is dividing the syllables “Brit-ain” . And he barely breathes out the last syllable. It’s so annoying!
We all learned in school that you divide a syllable with a short vowel after the vowel , right? We don’t say “ div-ide “ , we say “di-vide”.
So what is the deal with some people not correctly pronouncing words that end in the letters or sound of “tun” ?
Have you heard this? Does improper pronunciation irk you ?
