THREE WORDS:

1. Across. The word is ACROSS... there is NO "T" at the end of ACROSS yet people say "ACROSST" Say it right or DONT SAY IT AT ALL!

2. Height. The word is HEIGHT... there is NO "H" at the end of HEIGHT yet people say "HEIGHTH" Say it right or DONT SAY IT AT ALL!

3. Probably. It is spelled PROBABLY... NOT PROLLY! PROLLY IS NOT A FUCKING WORD!

Shit, I'd be happy just to hear broadcasters stop substituting the "Yu" sound for the "Ha" sound when uttering the word Human.

When the hell did we become "Youmans"?

Thats a constant process, yes, but nothing new, whether it is regional or racial in nature. The creep into common language of computer shorthand, spelling variations, etc has been reported to be an increasing problem. Thats the sort of thing I was thinking of.

People are just rounding off the hard consonants (germanic languages, like english and.. err german).

Need more vowels (romantic languages like latin, french, spanish, italian).

consonants - A speech sound produced by a partial or complete obstruction of the air stream by any of various constrictions of the speech organs, such as (p), (f), (r), (w), and (h).

vowels - A speech sound, such as (e) or (i), created by the relatively free passage of breath through the larynx and oral cavity, usually forming the most prominent and central sound of a syllable.

That word is in the dictionary now, due to 'common usage' by highly educated buffoons.

The dougle negative in that drives me nuts, along with the same buffoons mispronouncing 'forté'.

Don't even get my wife started - she is an English major and an editor. Living in East Tennessee has been very frustrating for her. People there have some of the laziest speaking habits in the world (goes hand in hand with their work ethic.)

1. Asked - "Ast"

2. Can't - "Cain't"

3. Desk - "Dest"

Proper pronunciation of the English language is a factor of geography, genealogy and physiology. While each word has its denoted pronunciation people in different regions of this country and foreigners pronounce it differently. People from different ethnic enclaves of the country also pronounce words differently. One example is creek. Some would speak the double ee as E while others would pronounce it as an I.
What someone might view as a dissonance to their ear others would relish as a variation and investigate the speaker’s antecedents and place of residence.
That's the power of the language we speak today. The words are constantly morphing and changing even as the country morphs and changes with each influx of speakers. The English spoken in the US is markedly different than that spoken in England. Winston Churchill, the great British orator and statesman said it best when he stated that Great Britain and America were two great nations separated by a common language.

The yout of tooday will prolly be up a crik iffn we dont learn 'em rite, nuff said. Uff da.

Actually the name frige was prolly derived from the Guardian Frigerator Company which was purchased by GM and later became the Frigidaire division. They even had conversion units to convert ice boxes into friges.

WTF? ESCAPE - not EX-SCAPE.

Grown up, college-educated men now commonly use the hoodism "goes yard" or "going yard" when an MLB player hits a home run. Makes me think the guy ran onto the field and took a piss.
