Propaganda often gets mispronounced in my history class as it gets the suffix er added on the end plus I live in England home of the abbreviation and slang terminology, though I think this dialect only belongs to certain areas. Any way often the letter r gets removed from water and too much emphasis on the ha part of what so it sounds like wot in the end result also toilet often gets just the o over pronounced so it sounds like tolet. 

Sadly this is only scratching the surface of the pronunciation problem in my area.

"Can't" is one word that most Southerns mispronounce. But I hate words that have many meanings. Like the word "Live".

Sorry Mark but, I abhor the word "hate" because HATRED is the REAL reason there are so many problems in OUR world. People hate other religious types, other political types and some people just HATE to HATE. There is always conflict & drama.......just saying
