Common mispronunciations

What is wrong with this sign?

The place where you get your latte FAST!

Miss Lashes took it recently, a genuine sign outside a café and sent it to me knowing it would make me want to hyperventilate.   Having both worked in coffee shops there’s been many times we’ve wanted to scream ‘THERE’S NO X IN ESPRESSO’ But of course the world is full of mispronunciation designed to drive pedants like me completely mad. There are loads, I also go nuts at ‘pacific’ instead of specific and the ‘proof is in the pudding’ when the proof of the pudding is in the EATING.

What are yours?  I love to hear from you.

  1. *Prostrate* instead of Prostate

    *Perscripton* instead of Prescription

    You *can* instead of you may

    Different *to* instead of Different from – (you *may* use this one if your wish)

    I am sure there are many more but can’t think of them at the moment
