Pfft, you're in the South, Tim? xP

AND I HAVE ONE.
Not really a pronunciation, however.
So, you know the things on your dresser that you open and close to get your clothes from? Yeah. What do you call those.

Barbara. The name, yeah.
It's my bus-drivers name, and I hear some different variations of it.
Bar-br-uh
Bar-br-ah
Bar-bar-ah
Bar-bar-uh

Bar-br-uh. That's how I pronounce it if I see it written. If the person is introducing herself to me and pronounces it different then I call her that. XD

Bar-br-uh is the only way I've ever heard it pronounced.
Same with Deborah. My boss' name is spelled Debrah, so there's no doubt about that one at least. :P

Bar-ber-a

Maybe not a really clear sound on the second syllable, but it's still there.


Aftermath.
After- mar-th
After- mah-th

I say the second, but a couple of other people say it the first way.

Mosquito
Mos-kee-toe
Mos-kwee-toe

I said it the second way and my friends said it was adorable... then said they pronounced it the other way.

Giraffe
Jir-ah-ffe
Jir-ar-ffe

I say the second.


I had some other ones... but I forgot. Dx

That's what I do, Hazel.
So words that are said differently than they are spelled often confuse me. xD
Oh, and I can't say the word 'specific'/'specifically'.

After-math.
Jir-ah-ffe.
Mos-kee-toe.
