This thread of 27 mispronounced words is a hilarious phonics minefield

Just about everybody will have stumbled across a word that they struggle to pronounce correctly, sometimes without even realising it – like David Cameron trying to say “Sorry”, which he hilariously mispronounces as “It was the right thing to do.” It’s easily done.

When Twitter funny man and successful composer Nick Harvey‘s son spotted the word “chihuahua” in a book, he gave it a good try, and got there in the end, via some wonderful and logical attempts. Watch what happened.

We definitely prefer “chihoo-haha” to the usual pronunciation – just for the sheer joy of it, and the clip got people thinking of other mispronounced words, like these excellent efforts.
