    beautiful - i have a scottish accent so it sounds really forced and funny, with too much emphasis on the "eau" (ooo) sound of the word...

    Also, hoatching - it makes me think of loads of little insects ad that gives me the shivers.
    Aw no I like how beautiful sounds in Scottish accents!

    Hoatching is horrible though, like cockroaches. Cockroaches, that's another horrible one!

    I hate it soooooo much!

    I dislike any French word pronounced with an English accent, lingerie and impromptu being the worst.

    yeah my boyfriend was talking about some possible 'secret rulers' that he was doing about in history, and its a french name. i do not know how to spell it as it is a very long word that i have never heard before so i am not going to attempt but it was ssooo annoying. Everytime he said it i felt like punching him. no word has ever annoyed me as much as this. he has got a south accent aswell which i think made it worse.

    I do. The whole language for that matter.
    Well you can't, the whole thing is biased, especially because you're probably american. Although some pronunciations in american are VERY annoying, some make better sense than english and some words make more sense in the way they say in in the England english , mostly because they INVENTED english. So, you really can't judge pronunciation Mr tomato tom-a-to, because it is all the same word, just saying it different. :woo:

    I look like a right idiot because I never know how they're pronounced in English, and I know that if I pronounce it the French way people will stare at me as if I were a complete retard. I literally spell words like "impromptu" because I have no idea how mispronounced they are, so actually, I still end up being a complete retard, true :holmes:

    Condone. The word is always used wrong. It SHOULD mean "bad" but it actually means "support". WTF? Why? Does the word SOUND positive AT ALL?
    Condone:
    to excuse: excuse, overlook, or make allowances for; be lenient with; "excuse someone's behavior"; "She condoned her husband's occasional infidelities".

    You nonce.

    And many many many more.

    Oh and the 'typical student accent were they start talking louder, eventually screaming fully in your face, despite it being a pleasent conversation in an absolutely silent (except for the sound of their voice) place.'

    Oh and 'urrrmmmm' at the end of every sentence.
