The same people deluded by “The Definition Myth” are also deluded into think that there is such a thing as “correct” English. This dictionary website shows how wrong my English is. Because according to them, out of the 100 most mispronounced words, I mispronounce 39/100:
across, affidavit, Antarctic, Arctic, athlete, barbiturate, candidate, cardsharp, champ at the bit, clothes, dilate, diphtheria, drown, et cetera, especially, February, founder, height, hierarchy, regardless, jewelry, Ku Klux, Klan, mayonnaise, miniature, moot, nuptial, ordnance, parliament, percolate, prerogative, prescription, perspire, Realtor, recur, silicon, spit and image, tenent, tenterhooks, triathlon,
That is why a spell checker is so important to me — it is not my spelling that is bad, but my English.
