What's worse, when everyone giggled, I scolded them for being so childish. "It's a real word, you know."
"Why yes, it is... but that's not how you pronounce it."
Needless to say, it took a while to live that one down.
Interesting thread, i say it with the L
As far as I can remember,I've always pronounced the L.
Got made fun of just last night by a group of friends for slipping and calling Jon Hamm 'Jack Hamm'. So maybe I don't have a pronunciation problem - maybe my brains are getting to be no good.
