Video: Mental Floss’ “79 Common Mispronunciations”

I don’t often discuss pronunciations on here because you basically have to learn a whole new language to understand the traditional pronunciation guide.

Well, not a new language, but literally a new alphabet. The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a visual representation of the sounds different consonants, vowels, and diphthongs make when spoken out loud.

Again, this isn’t something I plan on digging into often. But I couldn’t help but share this video from Mental Floss, starring the hilarious John Green, about a few common mispronunciations.

Enjoy!
