On the back of the schedule thread - Help a non native speaker
I know a guy who used to feel very 'posh' when saying 'isue' and 'tisue' and he would repeat the 'correct' spelling after ppl used the sh version
I've also heard someone saying 'nurshery' (nursery)

I have an irrational hatred of the 'iss yoo' pronunciation. It makes my skin crawl.
It's not quite as bad as the "seksssss-ual" pronunciation for sexual. Truly skin crawling.
I'm always reminded of Brian Sewell when I think off iss-yoo and tiss-yoo and especially sekssssss-ual.
My skin also crawls. Bleurgh.
Ish-oo and tish-oo for me thank you very much.
