Okay, I thought this would be a good idea since I've been embarrassed by pronouncing something wrong in front on people and having them correct me. I thought Sasuke was pronounced sa-soo-kay until my friend corrected me

So let's all help each other out
I'll start. How do you pronounce parkour, and affiliate?

I pronounce Mitsubishi as "Ma-tu-bi-shi", because if you say Mit-su-bi-shi, it doesn't sound as classy as the Matu one, and some entrepreneur told me "Ma-tu-bi-shi" was the real pronunciation. If anyone knows about this, please enlighten me.

P.S: When you say "Ma-tu-bi-shi", you have to say it fast, like pronto, and try to make a "shh" sound near a-t!

~ Pronunciations actually vary or differ if you are in a different country. I guess.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Next is Aunt:

~ They say that there are two valid pronunciations for that word. Which do you prefer? -ant- or -aant- ?

~ I also had a hard time greeting people, "Happy New Year" because of "New", I dont know why, lolz

For tragedy, I would recommend saying "TRA-JEE-DEE" slowly and again and again, then as you become used to it, try saying tra-je-di, and I think it would be easier. For personification, say each syllable slowly and you'll be able to do that.
