As long as I can remember...
...my dear mom (now 70) has always transposed the 'm's and 'n's when she mentions "aluminum" (or "aluminium" to most of you other b3tans - we're Canadian, y'see)...so it comes out "alunimun". My brother has tried to get her to sound it out properly, syllable-by-syllable, to no avail. Also, my late dad pronounced Mexican food items with flat vowel sounds, such as "TAA-co" and "burr-IT-oh", and would often make vague requests of us such as "go fetch me the whatchacallit; it's right on top of the thing over there".
