pronunciations that annoy me

I don't like it when people pronounce "integral" as "in-TEH-gruhl." It's a legitimate pronunciation, I know, but it annoys the fuck out of me. What's wrong with "INNUH-gruhl" or the more Spock-like "INN-tuh-gruhl"?

Also annoying: hearing "aforementioned" pronounced incorrectly as "AFFER-mentioned." Dafuck is wrong wit' you? It's "uh-FOHR-mentioned"! Gitcher head outta yer ass.

  1. Had to laugh after reading the previous post and then seeing this. Another example of someone having a bad day? It could be worse, you should have heard how I used to pronounce "ascertain".
