Thrillophilia has created “32 Places People Have Mispronounced Their Entire Life”, a visually attractive way to explain the correct way to pronounce commonly mispronounced places around the world.

There’s nothing more irritating to a pedant’s ear and nothing more flabbergasting than realizing you’ve been pronouncing the name of so many places wrong, your entire life! Despite the judgment we exhibit toward people who err in enunciating, we all mispronounce a word from time to time, despite our best efforts.
