Today I learned that I mispronounce the following words, because my students corrected me

  • Epistrophe
  • Raytheon

  1. o-song said: I spent several years mispronouncing ‘irony’. I was good with ‘ironic’ though. Because of Alanis. Who’d probably say this was ironic.
  2. danisdapper said: Raytheon is going to shoot a bunch of missiles at you.
  3. andyhutchins said: I also want to know how you were pronouncing raytheon/Raytheon.
  4. yumwatch said: How were you pronouncing Raytheon? Jeebus.
  5. towerofsleep said: I did not even know that those were words.
  6. markrichardson said: ray-thee-on right?
