Places Mispronounced Throughout a Lifetime
It is great to know a language well, to manoeuvre within range, but what about the pronunciation of it. And verbs or nouns are easier to apprehend as they are pronounced easier. Though places such as Bangkok, Reykjavik or Beijing at the local language aren’t harder to pronounce? Most of us mispronounce these places mostly due to lack of adaptiveness of the place, customs of the place and the use of the language itself.
Thrillophilia created a wonderful map of how most people pronounce a place and how actually should have been pronounced it. I hope I have learnt something through this work. Enjoy.
