March 05, 2016 2
English is the international language of the world. It has brought all to the men into one single garland. Today the knowledge of English is a must to explore the world, maintain personality and lead a professional life. So interaction through English is common in our surroundings. But what happens to our intellectual level if we pronounce our words mistakenly? Have we ever thought on it?

Below are some of the common words I caught being mispronounced in my surroundings and they have been made correct here:

1. wednesday- adjective
‘d’ is silent.
2. practically-radically-enthusiastically
‘cally’ is pronounced as ‘kli’ not ‘kally’.
3. why-when-wheat-what
‘h’ is silent.
4. husband-Thursday
‘s’ is pronounced as ‘z’.
5. president-resident
‘si’ is  pronounced as ‘zi’.
6. account- alone -along -amount- arise- await- award- awake
‘a’ should not be pronounced as ‘e’.
7. business- darkness- kindness- helpfulness
‘ness’ is pronounced as ‘nas’.
8. hurtfully- helpfully- carefully 
‘fully’ is pronounced as ‘’faly’.
9. efficiently- sufficiently
ifisantly- safisantly

Some words are pronounced differently in British and American English. But the above written words are pronounced uniformly in both types of language.
