Re: Anyone Else Tired Of These Sayings

Agree with Porcelain - influencer. It makes me want to ignore that person in every way.

 

Husband listens to a lot of audio books - he waits for this one word in almost every modern novel -- 'wafting.' It bugs him. We laugh about it. We create reasons to say 'wafting' at unexpected times.

 

My big irritation -- and there's even a word for it -- “T-glottalization.” It occurs when a speaker swallows the T sound in a word rather than speaking it aloud. We hear it when words like “kitten” and “water” are pronounced like “KIH-en” and “WAH-er.” I just want to tell these people --- staaaahhhhpppp.

Re: Anyone Else Tired Of These Sayings

@jeanlakeYes, I've noticed this pronunciation with the "t" sound more n more lately.  I thought to myself, do I pronounce kitten like that?  Watched a few commercials where the t is spoken oddly like that.  Hard to xplain, I just know it sounds a little off to me.

 

I wonder if its a regional thing.  I noticed people from Long Island, NY pronounce "Lon Gisland".  Some people say jewelery (3 syllables), I say jewelry (2 syllables).  Sorry, I'm getting off topic here.  Me bad.  Cat Surprised
