Is Mispronunciation a “Fatal Flaw”? – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today's Daily Dilemma:
I've been dating this guy for about 2 years, and he's the greatest - don't get me wrong. He's kind, generous, and a very hard worker and everything. We've talked marriage many times, but there's one thing that gets to me and I actually feel very bad about it.
It's his pronunciation. Words like "chipotle". He'll pronounce it Chip-OTTEL.. He'll call someone an ATH-E-LETE instead of athlete. " Excape". "Excetera." Stuff like that. Maybe I'm picky, but it's incorrect English, and I don't want our future kids talking like this. Whenever I bring it to his attention he gets really aggravated. Should I just ignore it even though it bugs me?
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
