What words do people always mis-pronounce that just drives you crazy? Not talking about words such as tomato or potato, or hard tp pronounce words, but just easy common words that other people seem to always mis-pronounce. For me it's "Idea". I hear a lot of people adding an R at the end, and thus say "Idear". I can say 'idea' correctly and it just drives me nuts when other people say 'idear'.
