per – rog – uh – tivpre – rog – uh – tivboth are considered acceptable
The "r" in the first syllable of the word is a common omission when pronounced (probably Bobby Brown's/Britney's fault?) but it's there for a reason - to be pronounced!
off-enoff-tenboth are considered acceptable
Although many consider the "t" to be silent, both forms are considered to be correct.
SHER-betSHER-bertboth are considered acceptable
The incorrect addition of "r"in the second part of the word is pretty commonplace, resulting in the pronunciation of "bert" instead of "bet".
neeshnitchboth are considered acceptable
Although the word is French in origin (with the pronunciation "neesh"), "nitch" is also a widely accepted pronunciation.
ka-shaykashboth are considered acceptable
The words "cache" and "cachet" are commonly confused, resulting in the mispronunciation "ka-shay".
bay-nalbuh-nahlboth are considered acceptable
The first part is to be pronounced "buh" not "bay". Basically refrain from rhyming with "anal" and you'll be fine.
lar-veelar-vayboth are considered acceptable
The "vae" in this word is pronounced "vee" not "vay".
mis-chee-vee-usmis-che-vusboth are considered acceptable
Mischievous is one of the most commonly misspelt words and therefore one of the most mispronounced. The tendency to add in an "i'" after the "v" makes the word four syllables when it's only three. Also, the "e" in "che" is often elongated when pronounced, resulting in the incorrect "chee" sound.
aww-reeuh-ryeboth are considered acceptable
There's nothing cute about this word and the "wry" part of the word is pronounced exactly the same as the word "wry". Weird, huh?
ee-jisay-jisboth are considered acceptable
The "ae" sound in this word is pronounced "ee" not "ay".
ar-ki-pe-la-goar-chi-pe-la-goboth are considered acceptable
Don't let "arch" confuse you in this case, it's pronounced more like "arc".
tick-i-lishtick-lishboth are considered acceptable
This word is often pronounced with three syllables when there are only two.
A NOTE: Some words in this quiz are commonly misspelled which can cause mispronunciation. For many words there isn't one unquestionably correct pronunciation, it depends on numerous factors. Dictionaries by Cambridge and Oxford have been consulted to create this post, but please bear in mind that whilst a "correct" pronunciation option has been given, there are lots of cases where other variations are also widely accepted.
Basically don't get too peeved if the option you use isn't there - your way could still be correct!
