Melbourne, Feb 5 ANI | 2 years ago

February has been found to be the most mispronounced month.

As Akira Okrent from points out, February is just one of a litany of words where many people blatantly ignore the spelling and pronounce it the way they want, reported.

Okrent wrote, before explaining that it is the result of a process called "dissimilation", which is why we simply do not like to have two r's so close to each other.

In other words, the Rs are just too close. "Dissimilation" isn't isolated to February, either.

Many people say "suprise" when they should say "surprise", "paticular" instead of "particular", "beserk" over "berserk".

Well to correctly pronounce February is "Feb-roo-air-ree".
