  • the first of ten words that even natives

  • regularly mispronounce is the word cache

  • cache not cache, which even I am guilty

  • of sometimes saying. But cash like cold

  • hard cash. now this word refers to a type

  • of storage I often hear it when talking

  • about the computer and Internet files. I

  • often have to empty my cache folder to

  • make sure my computer is running

  • smoothly.

  • the second word is the word espresso

  • espresso I for a long time we're saying

  • eXpresso which lots of natives do, we

  • were adding this X sound: expresso. But

  • that's not correct it's espresso,

  • espresso. do you like to drink a nice

  • espresso in the morning? I certainly do.

  • I've really missed my coffee during my

  • time of pregnancy, cannot wait to have an

  • espresso once the baby's born. before I

  • continue I just want to say if you're

  • interested in the lingoda language

  • marathon then the deadline is fast

  • approaching so do not miss out. the

  • language marathon is a chance for you to

  • have three months worth of language

  • classes for free. you pay upfront and if

  • you attend all the classes then you will

  • be entitled to a full refund.

  • you can take the language marathon in

  • English French German Spanish or

  • business English. the marathon runs from

  • the 1st of October and finishes on the

  • 1st of January and you are expected to

  • take 30 classes every month for 3 months

  • but there is a little Christmas clause

  • so you don't have to take class on the

  • 24th 25th or 26th. other than that you

  • are expected to attend the class every

  • day and once you do you will get your

  • full refund, if that's too much for you

  • then you can take the half marathon

  • which is very popular, you take 15

  • classes every month for three months and

  • then

  • if you complete all three months, 15

  • classes per month, you will get a 50%

  • refund, a 50% refund, if you do want to

  • enter or you simply want to find out

  • more

  • don't delay click on the link in the

  • description box below. there is a five

  • euro entrance fee but that fee will be

  • highly discounted if you also then use

  • the code provided and most importantly

  • please do make sure you've read the full

  • terms and conditions before you get

  • signed up once you know what you're

  • doing then you should be able to do it

  • successfully.

  • best of luck if you're going to enter

  • let's carry on with those words. number 3

  • etc rather than the mispronunciation etc

  • etc which is what I've been saying for a

  • long time. etc is something you would use

  • at the end of a list to mean 'and other

  • things' there's more for the list. so I

  • might say "I went grocery shopping I

  • bought apples oranges milk bread etc"

  • number 4, it's quite a difficult word to

  • get your mouth around and it's the word

  • February you have to really

  • make sure you're pronouncing that r

  • after the b. February. many

  • of us naturally say FebUary and we put

  • our liquid Y sound in there FebUary

  • but that's not correct. February. the next

  • word is difficult because the dexterity

  • that's needed to move your tongue fast

  • enough it's the word sixth, sixth. so your

  • tongue has to be up at the back to make

  • the K it comes forward for the s and

  • then through the teeth quickly to make

  • the th. sixth sixth

  • so if you practice those three

  • points: back of the tongue high, tip of

  • the tongue to the roof of the mouth, and

  • then the th = K, S , TH, then you will

  • have the perfect pronunciation of sixth.

  • luckily most of us don't come

  • sixth in a race so we don't have to say it

  • very often. the next word is a word I've

  • struggled with most of my life and it's

  • due to a mishearing when I was a child.

  • words that start with PER or PRE can

  • often be confused and it's the word

  • perhaps perhaps. Now as a child I only

  • ever heard Pre PREhaps PREhaps so I was

  • saying p r e it was only through really

  • learning to spell this word that I

  • realsed I was mispronouncing it. it

  • should be perhaps not

  • PREhaps. sticking with that theme another

  • commonly confused P word is prescription

  • prescription

  • we often say PERscription as if it was

  • spelt PER but that's not the case it's

  • PRE so it should be prescription. your

  • doctor will give you a prescription

  • which you must take to the chemist. the

  • next word is a fun word and it's the

  • word tenterhooks, tenterhooks. if you are

  • on tenterhooks it means that you are

  • concerned anxious worried about

  • something. if I'm waiting for some news

  • about some loved ones perhaps they are

  • very ill or they've been in an accident

  • you could say Anna was waiting on

  • tenterhooks. she was nervous anxious

  • worried. but many people mispronounce

  • this word as tenderhooks tenderhooks

  • instead of tenterhooks. next we have a

  • commonly confused pair of words utmost

  • and upmost, utmost

  • and upmost. they are two existing words

  • and often utmost is replaced by upmost

  • which is incorrect.

  • utmost means of great importance it's

  • serious. so you often hear this when

  • talking about how important something is

  • so you might say "it's of the utmost

  • concern" or "it's of the utmost importance"

  • so you're saying it's severe. it's

  • very important. it's to be taken

  • seriously.

  • however upmost just means of the highest

  • point. so you might say the upmost shelf

  • or the upmost branch. I don't hear that

  • word as often but utmost I hear

  • regularly so make sure you're saying up

  • with a T not up with a P. now the

  • next word is one of my favorite word's

  • whether it's pronounced correctly or

  • mispronounced it's a wonderful word but

  • before I jump onto that word I just want

  • to say if you are learning English then

  • make sure you've clicks that subscribe

  • button and the bell notification button

  • so you don't miss out on any future

  • lessons and please make sure you give

  • this video a big thumb up. okay that

  • final word, the one that I love is the

  • voluptuous it means curvy

  • round ripe a little bit chubby perhaps

  • normally you can call a person

  • voluptuous if they're curvy and

  • attractive with their curves they're

  • very voluptuous. the mispronunciation is

  • voLUMPtuous like they're all lumpy

  • voLUMPtuous which is what I always said

  • up until recently. it's for volumptuous

  • no it's voluptuous to us not volumptuous

  • so there we go what words

  • do we have? cache, espresso, etc, February February

  • February, sixth,

  • perhaps, prescription, tenterhooks, utmost,

  • very important and voluptuous.

  • I have to

  • repeat that to myself a thousand times

  • so I don't mispronounce it ever again. do

  • you have any words that you regularly

  • mispronounce? let me know and let me know

  • if you are in native and you

  • mispronounce any of these words and any

  • additional words that you mispronounce

  • it's always incredibly interesting to

  • hear from you if you have enjoyed this

  • video about mispronunciations then you

  • may enjoy this video just down here and

  • if you're up for something a little

  • bit fruity, a bit of a laugh then take a
