The things you can learn with Sam and Lissa.
 
10 words you are most likely mispronouncing:
1. "Mischievous."  You might be saying "miss-CHEEV-ee-us."  But it's supposed to be "MISS-chiv-us."
2.  "Chipotle."  A lot of people think it's "chi-POL-tay."  But it should be "chi-POAT-lay."
3.  "Often."  It rhymes with "soften."  Don't say "OFF-ten."
4.  "Sherbet."  Not "SHER-bert" . . . "SHER-bet."
5.  "Candidate."  You might be used to hearing "CAN-a-dit."  But it's actually "CAN-di-dit."
6.  "Banal."  If you use this word at all, you're probably saying "BAY-nul."  But it's "buh-NAHL."
7.  "Prerogative."  Don't say it like Bobby Brown.  Don't do ANYTHING like Bobby Brown.  The word is "preh-ROGG-uh-tiv."
8.  "Seuss."  As in, Dr. Seuss."  Everyone says "SOOSE," but it's supposed to be "SOICE."  Even the Doctor himself gave up and started accepting the wrong way.
9.  "Bruschetta."  Almost everyone says "bruh-SHETT-uh."  But you should be saying "broo-SKETT-uh."
10.  "GIF."  Don't say "JIFF."  It's "GIFF," with a hard "G."
 
And Stephanie called with #11…Realtor. She says there is no “a” between the “l’ and “t”
And she should know because her husband is one!!!
 
Any other words that drive you crazy when you hear them mispronounced?
