Cache is pronounced Cash-ay in military lexicon because they already have an asset who's acronym is "CASH", I think its a hospital or medical facility of some sort.

Yes, and "advice" is something you give or get. "Advise" is something you do. Loose is a verb, as in "the belt is loose." "Lose" is something that you do, as in "you are going to lose your ass in that game." "Too" means "in addition." "To" show action toward something. "Two" is more than one and less than three.

Touche' is pronounced like "too-shay." Cache is not.

Moot rhymes with boot and is pronounced accordingly. Moot is NEVER pronounced MUTE.

The patch of land between lanes of roadway is called a MEDIAN, not a MEDIUM. "Medium" designates a temperature of steak (140-150degrees), a psychic or paranormal interpreter, or the area between low and high. The terms are not interchangeable.


I could go on and on, but it's sometimes like casting pearls before swine...

As a deer hunter I hear a good number of individuals call the seeds of oak trees "a-kerns" rather than "a-corns." For some reason that bugs the crap out of me.

If the tree is growing by a CRIK(creek) that is the correct way to say akern.

And don't get me started on affect vs. effect or site, sight and cite! On the flip side of the coin, apostrophes, other than contractions just kill me! That's why I never Grammar Nazi(can Grammar Nazi be used as a verb?).

Hey, fellow Cheesehead--please tell them it's okay to say "crick" and "aCORN."

Had an aunt that always said 'Krayk', not Krik or Kreek.

Loose is an adjective the way you used it. It can also be used as a verb, as in "Loose the hounds!"

FWIW the whole loose/lose thing makes my teeth itch also.

Don't get me started on "alot".

Of course not--you're in Illinois.

Repeat after me--A-CORN (long "A").


I'm so far south I might as well live in Kentucky.

Depends on which mark.

Caché would be pronounced Cash-ay.
Cachè would be pronounced Cash with maybe a very slight vestigial "uh" at the end.
Cachë would be pronounced, um, ask someone who knows German.

But the word is cache with no mark, so it's pronounced cash in English.

"Cash ay" sounds french. That is all.
