    We all know the word "inflation" is spelled the same in English and French, but it is definitely not pronounced the same.

    So, have you ever got your words mixed up? If so what did you feel at that time? :rolleyes:

    I always say cockporn instead of popcorn- because a comedian (dunno who) said it & my mum said it as a joke so it kinda stuck as a personal joke in the family.. but it also became second nature to say it haha so i say it without thinking now. i get some very weird looks..
