Language Lover Alert: Cacoepy Friday’s Word of the Day Haiku

1 min read

I like languages and the clever use of them. In this particular case, we look at English. Blogger Kat Myrman writes that this language feature, mispronunciation, causes her to cringe when she hears it but out of politeness she listens while planning her escape. Although I agree in general, I am alert to the possibility that I might be in the presence of a struggling comedian.

This is a long post but be sure to scroll through to the fun part, the misinterpreted lyrics. These are followed by a scary politick le (sic) haiku and one more haiku to emphasize the new word learned.
