The Incongruity of Spoken and Written Pronunciation

You can tell people who read a lot because of the occasional mispronunciation they make because they know a word, but never heard it pronounced. I used to mispronounce “metropolitan” for that reason.

Anyway, this Adam at Home comic almost makes that point:

My advice? Show someone the word and ask them how to pronounce it. If they turn out to be wrong, at least you’ll have someone to blame.
