and in some cases, know how to pronounce
  1. worcestershire
    can't say it. can't spell it. can't live without it.
  2. collateral
    i work in finance. this is a little embarrassing.
  3. embarrassing
    double r. double s. double shame.
  4. salmon
    this one i know all around now. but i blame ESL for pronouncing the "L" until high school. or maybe college.
