Things That I Hate

Envelope

I hate it when people pronounce it onvelope. If it was meant to be pronounced that way, they would have spelt it that way!

  3. Well many people pronounce it as "onvelope" because of its french etymology. Kind of like how we're supposed to day "foyay" instead of "foyer."
