Some things that bug me in speech are:
Toronto - "Tronna"
I - "me"
going - "gonna"
yes - "yeah" "yup"
water - "wadder"
rout - to dig or chase
route - a specified direction (often pronounced as "rout" instead of "root. In the USA don't know the difference.)
The alphabet is all vowels and consonants, hard sounds and soft sounds.
For example: A vowel followed by a consonant and a vowel, use the hard sound, like "baby" or "hose."
A vowel followed by 2 consonants and a vowel, use the soft sound - like "babby" or "chose."
Did you learn anything? Have fun.
