We have already seen some commonly used mispronounced words in our previous post. Here are some more common words which are wrongly pronounced by many persons.
  • Athlete – It is pronounced as /ATH-LETE/ not /ath-uh-lete/. The word has two syllables, not three.
  • Asterisk – It is pronounced as /AS-TER-ISK/ not /as-ter-ik/. Notice the second S.
  • Ask – It is pronounced as /ASK/ not /aks/. The S comes before the K.
  • Accessory – It is pronounced as AK-SESS-OR-Y not as ASS-ESS-OR-Y. The first C has a “hard” sound.
  • Arctic – Note the C after the R. It is pronounced as ARK-TIK not AR-TIK.
  • Anyway – The problem with this word the addition of an unnecessary sound. Don’t add an s to make it “anyways.” The word is ANYWAY.
