you're doing it wrong.

i recommend you read through this list of commonly mispronounced words and phrases. i was completely shocked by a handful of these. how many of these do you regularly mispronounce? i counted about 17 that i mispronounce, and maybe 6-8 out of those 17 that i'm misspelling/misstating.

some of the words/phrases the article claims are incorrect:

- tenderhooks (it's tenterhooks)
- stomp (you stamp your feet)
- spitting image (it's 'spit and image')
- persnickety (it's pernickety)
- chomp at the bit (it's 'champ at the bit')
- card shark (it's cardsharp)
