Pronounciation.

June 1, 2009

In my job, I use and hear the word “eligible” oh, about a million times a day.  And, I hearby suggest it should appear on this list, http://www.yourdictionary.com/library/mispron.html.  Because for some reason, people JUST CANNOT pronounce it correctly.  I don’t get it really, but they just can’t.  Instead of ELigible, it becomes EGilible.  It’s very difficult for people who don’t speak English as their first language.  I really wish I could be the tongue of people who can’t pronounce the word, and see how the word gets screwed up as it flows over me. Cause it really just confuses me!  So, yes, I nominate eligible the hardest word of 2009!
