Misprounounced Words

What words do you hear ppl say that you think are like BUTCHERED.. or maybe YOU'RE the butcher.

I say syrup like "sare-up" and everyone else says "seer-up"

Some people say "orange" as written, some say "ornsch"

And today I was told that I say "always" as "ole-wees"

o_O I annoy myself

Anything else?

haha the good ole windy.
like fridee and satdee

Its starting to bug me that some Australians are starting to pronounce certain letters like a certain other country, and its from laziness, not our accent.
Not naming any names, but the word is get not git, but not bi/et, been not bin.

do u say envelope or onvelope?
ee-ther or eye-ther?
advertis-ment or ad-vertISE-ment?

We aussies are very confuddled when it comes to plant/plahnt, dance/dahnce.
but we all say carn't.

People tell me that I pronounce "about" like "aboot" or "aboat". They ask me if I am from Canada, and I say, no, I'm from the UP, and they say, oh, it's all the same.

I have a hard time pronouncing conscientious most of the time. I usually end up saying conshe-enshish.

Most New Jerseyians--if you haven't already noticed--butcher just about every word in the English language...

word: drawer
New Jerseyian pronunciation: droooowr

word: dog
New Jerseyian pronunciation: dawg

word: New Jersey
New Jerseyian pronunciation: Joisey

i must say that sometimes i catch myself talking in this manner...either when i'm really passionate or frustrated about something. whatever you do, just don't be the one to point it out to me, or you'll be on my bad side
