Alright, welcome back to Weekly Words. I'm Alisha, and this week we're gonna talk about
commonly missed pronounced... Missed pronounced. Wow. This week we're going to talk about commonly
mispronounced words, words that are often pronounced incorrectly. This is funny.
I enjoy mispronouncing this first word. The first word is “hyperbole.” “Hyperbole.”
Um, it's not “hyper-bowl,” though it does sound very funny to say that. A “hyperbole”
just means to “exaggerate something,” um, or to make, to blow something up, make
it really extreme. “My friend uses a lot of hyperbole when she talks about her life
stories. I really don't think some of those things happened to her.” “Hyperbole.”
Not hyper-bowl.
Next, “Antarctic.” Not… Ah, oh, I see. “Antarctic” is the correct pronunciation
of this word. Some people say “Ant-ar-tic...” really? Oh. I guess when
you're saying this word quickly, you might leave out that first C in the Antarctic, uh,
so don't say that. Don't do that. Say “Antarctic.” Be it a very, very cold region. The Arctic
is the North cold region on the planet Earth. The South is the Antarctic. There's sort
of like a hiccup in the word there. “Antarctic.” Oh, in a sentence, “I'm thinking about
taking a cruise to the Antarctic. What do you think I need?” Penguin suit.
“Et cetera.” Not “ex-cetera.” Oh, yeah, okay. I hear this “ek,” “ek”
thing a lot. “Et cetera” is just used at the end of a list to imply that you mean
other things, ah, so the list is not, um, exclusive to the things that you've listed.
Other things can also be included in it. So in a sample sentence, um, “Types of fruits
are apples, oranges, peaches, et cetera.” There are others as well, so don't say “ex-cetera.”
That's not correct. “Et cetera. That's good.
The next word is “jewelry.” What? The next word is “jewelry.” “Jewelry.”
I think I'm probably guilty of this mispronunciation. I can't say that word. “Mispronunciation”
where the word kinda gets a little bit smushed together, and we say “jewelry” instead.
We miss that, that second E sound in there. It should be “jew-el-rey.” Uh, in a sample
sentence, maybe you would say. “I'm shopping for some jewelry for my
mother for her birthday.” “Jewelry.” We're too lazy.
“Prescription.” Not “perscription.” Okay, a “prescription” is something that
doctor gives you when you're sick, and you require medicine, the doctor will write you
a “prescription.” Some people might say “perscription.” Wow, okay. I didn't
even notice, and I was doing it while I was telling you guys not to do it. That's embarrassing.
“Prescription.” A doctor writes you a “prescription,” not a “perscription.”
Uh, when you go to the doctors' office, the doctor might say, “Here is your “prescription.”
End. Alright! Well, we've learned that I apparently can't pronounce some words the
way that they're meant to be pronounced. So please work on your pronunciation. I will
work on my pronunciation too. Thank you for joining us on Weekly Words this week. I will
see you next time. Bye-bye!
