The Most Mispronounced Words of the Year
Greg admits he had a hard time saying "statistic".
A company called U.S. Captioning does the subtitles for live events on TV. They also do an annual list of the most mispronounced words of the year and polled newscasters and announcers to find out which words they had trouble with in 2021. The number one word was “cheugy” (choo-gee) a gen z term for things that are unfashionable or outdated. Then there’s “tal-go-nah”…a Korean treat made popular by the hit Netflix show “Squid Game.” How about “dojecoin”… the cryptocurrency popularized by Elon Musk. Folks also had trouble saying hit singer Billie Eilish’s last name. Other words on the list include chipotle and omicron.
