I mean, think about it! I read words all the time, figured out their meanings via context clues, but once I got to "I Can Read" books, I never heard them spoken simultaneously.
Therefore, I knew there was a word "misled" --- but it took me until high school to realize that the "misled" in my books was the SAME as the word "MISS-led" spoken aloud.
How did my reading mind pronounce it in books?
I'd guessed that it meant "tricked," but I never actually connected the dots to the word "MISS-led" that I'd heard.
And don't even get me started on hors d'oeuvres --- I pronounced that "whores d'vores" for YEARS when reading it.
Lastly --- I read so fast that sometimes I transpose letters. Thus, Hermione Granger was "Her-moine" (like Des Moines, Iowa) until she phonetically pronounced her name to Viktor Krum in book four. Talk about a revelation!
Alright, don't leave me lonely in my embarrassment.
What words do/did you mispronounce while reading?
^ Delish whores d'vores ^
