My beef is the word nuclear pronounced nucular. Of course there is no such word. Politicians, scientists, newscasters, G.W. Bush, they all used the incorrect pronunciation. It drives me nuts. When I point it out to people they look at me like there’s something wrong with me. Someone pointed out that to most people it sounds ‘right’. To me it sounds just like when people say, “I don’t gut none”. So, I’ve learned to live with it as most people don’t even hear the difference.
