24 Places People Have Mispronounced Their Entire Lives.

There are two reasons why someone like you should not be mispronouncing names of places. First, it’s kind of a bummer when you are in a place and you want to blend in quickly with the locals and make the mistake of pronouncing the name of their place incorrectly. Second, I would assume you’re someone who cares about the fine use of language and its proper use, and mispronouncing anything would be counterintuitive. That’s why you really shouldn’t mispronounce the names of the places below, and there’s a chance you’ve been doing that your whole life. Thrillophilia took the liberty of putting them in contrasts and we hope they appeal to you.
