Perpetuating Mispronounciations

13 comments
It really bugs me how the new stop announcing system on the Metro Transit buses mispronounces "Gottingen." It's a hard g, yo. Gott-ing-en. Not Gott-uh-jen. It doesn't even make sense to pronounce it in the latter way—people just seem to do that because everyone around them does. Spelling and grammar errors by businesses is something that bothers me a lot. I get people doing it (because not everyone cares) and that businesses are made up of people, but there should be some QC/"business editor" to catch these things. —25-Year-Old-Guy-Who-Cannot-Unsee-Many-Things
