A while ago I was at a meeting where a man was giving a very technical presentation. He was presenting his design in front of a very big group of important people. He was preparing for a national conference where he was scheduled to make a very important contribution to the existing technical knowledge base.
when he described one part being stuck between two other parts he described it as being "sammiched."
Not "sandwiched" but "sammiched."
When people pronounce words wrong I have a real hard time taking what they are saying seriously. Happens all the time when people say "impordent" instead of "important"
Anyone else have similar experience?
