I was doing a graphic comprised of 36 individual images, and was at least 2/3 done with it, when suddenly: Blackout! The thing is, I’m not even that upset about it. I have no idea what got into me today, but I like it!
Until today’s episode I had only seen the name “Maeve” in writing, and I had always pronounced it in my head as “May'ave” instead of the actual pronunciation that, to me at least, sounded more like “Mayv”.
It’s a common situation. Quite a bit of my vocabulary comes from books, newspapers, and the such, so there are many words I know and can use in a perfectly adequate manner, but haven’t the faintest idea of how to pronounce. For instance, until recently, I was convinced “awry” was pronounced “aw-ry” instead of “a-wry”
Most of the time, it’s not really a problem, since most of my English use is done in writing, but when I’m watching a show, I sometimes completely miss words that I do know when I’m reading them, instead of hearing them.
