The Big Book of Beastly Mispronunciations: The Complete Opinionated Guide for the Careful Speaker - Charles Harrington Elster Bought this to bone up on words and stuff because this certain person kept on butting in and correcting how I pronounced words (the ass). This book is undeniably useful, but ultimately made me feel like a fool. So I gave it to my little brother, who's in a Nazi stage right now (grammar, among others) and might love to use this to lord his pedantry over his peers. Teens.

Odd note: this book insists "flaccid" can be pronounced "flak-sid". That's the only thing that stuck. Oh and I learned that Qatar is pronounced with the stress on the first syllable. Not that it matters, how you say it, as long as the money still gets to where it needs to be, amiright? lolz.
