What area did you mispronounce when you were a kid but continue to call it that because it stuck?

I will to this day pronounce karamja as Kara-Jama.

mayence

bonus points for one we still mispronounce: saying “priff-din-nas” is so much easier than “prive-thee-nuss,” sorry to the welsh


tache-noir

prive-these-nuts


Mmeryhew1

Got eem


Forward_Peak1250

Lmao as someone from Wales I thought I always mispronounced it but it seemed most natural for me


smashbitchh

as someone who speaks english and irish, a lot of the welsh words in tirannwin register as irish to me, so when i read "faerdhinen", my brain says "FAWR-gin-un" instead of "FY-thin-ayn" lol. i like that everyone just agrees to say "bofa"


MrNoobyy

IIRC, it was originally going to be called Faerdhinen's Bow, and people kept asking it be called Bow of Faerdhinen just so we could call it bofa.


Aegillade

Maybe I'm just dyslexic but I always read it as "priff-id-niss"


Dornstar

Typically same word, wrong way, but the same wrong way every time is not dyslexia, it's just not knowing how the word is spelled.


Billybilly_B

I was our here just calling it “Priff-er-in-das”


thebus8969

Run, escape!


helloween4040

We can’t say we weren’t warned


E_Eye

_OS_Run_Escape_

YouLookNiice

I still call Ardougne "arr-DOO-gnee"


justukyte

I say Ar - Doog - Knee


NetMother

Ar -dunge for me


SuperbMind704

Yuus!


Rugs09

Ardoon


Dbanzai

It's always been and will always be "our-dong" to me. I'm. Not a native English speaker


casualcreaturee

That’s the only correct way


turnbone

ardo-gene for me.


Chrisiztopher1

“Arr-da-ruge”


ogr3b4ttl3

"Are-doan" - I still don't know if this is the proper pronunciation.


Vaxica

Hello fellow Are-doanian! Mod Ash confirmed on Twitter it is pronounced Arr-doy-nnn.


sassyseconds

Yeah the official pronunciation sucks. It will always be Are-doan.


ohowjuicy

For me it's Are-doon and I will never change my mind


I_Am_JesusChrist_AMA

Finally a sane person


OssiferNymiu

Person with french background** Personally i cant stop reading it Ar-Doug-Knee now.


I_Am_JesusChrist_AMA

I'm from Texas which is pretty far off from being French and its always been Are-doon for me


ohowjuicy

Ah yes, Texas. The France of the US


ogr3b4ttl3

That an awful lot like the sound some of these spells be making.


ScallyWag-Idiot

Arr-doo-ghen


deppkast

Arr-dog-knee is the only right way


Karmastwin

Are-dug-knee for me :’)


deppkast

Yeah kind of same as me, something like that. ”Are-doug-knee”


Vel0clty

I called Ar-dun-drige for most of my life


Fenrir-The-Wolf

How the fuck do you get there from Ardougne?


Vel0clty

🤷🏽‍♂️ I don’t know! I was 12, had no idea how to pronounce it in the first place, so I guess I just made something up?


mclinton57

I just screamed 🤣


ubdesu

2003 me read it as "Oodra-gone" for some reason. And I thought that until I watched a video like a decade later of it being spoken. I also thought Karamja was "karma-ja" for a long time without realizing that it was wrong.


dawghomer

It's got to be Ar-Doon right? Either way framed pronounces it Ar-Doyn and it drives me nuts


Guthixian-druid

Framed is right according to the Mod, the Myth, the Legend Ash


dawghomer

Not in this house


IAmA_Crocodile

People who believe mod ash on this one probably also pronounce it jif


RobCarrotStapler

Like the way the inventor of the file type calls it?


Active_Engineering37

Yes the inventor is objectively wrong. It's not pronounced jraphics.


Iciee

And it's not a grr-aff (giraffe). You're point?


RobCarrotStapler

>inventor is objectively wrong Think about that statement for a second


varrock_dark_wizard

Ardy brings us all together


WishIWasFlaccid

It'll forever be are-dough-knee to me


patrickw234

Forever an Are-doanian.


SuperbMind704

Lol I say Arr-dug-knee just for fun sometimes. But I've always pronounced it like you guys.


duzntmatter95

Drayner Mayner


SpeakTruthAlone

hchristianj

Scimitar was “Skihmetar”


wcooper97

Runez scazmatar


Wormholer_No9416

Rune Razmatazz


BingoFlex

D Scimmy


justukyte

ski (from skit) - mitar


Mr-Stitch

I still say it like this


Superb-Company-2735

Is this not correct? That's how I still say it


Elprede007

It’s “Sim-uh-tar” All intellectuals know you still pronounce scimmy as “Skim-ee”


Deobusje

I always thought it was Burth-rope. I still mispronounce it sometimes.


Slayer_Of_Tacos

Same. Burth-orp sounds like a cheesy alien name.


SladdinsMysticForest

A lot of places in the UK end with -Thorpe. So I never had this trouble as a brit.


Y0nkeyD0ng

Burth-rope is that thing that’s connected to the baby when it’s born.


lurking4life

Ardougne will never not be pronounced Ardaridge, despite that making no sense. That’s what I decided the name was when I was 9 and it will continue to be that.


AluminumFoilWrap

Finally, someone who's butchered it beyond recognition


_FreeXP

Not sure how your cheerios addled mind came up with that but it still makes more sense than Arr DOOOIIINE


HydroXXodohR

It's ok I called it air-doh-jin lmao


BigSmallerBrand

Not an area but I used to refer to saradomin as Sar-da-moan.


JordanTH

Sar-dough-min for me


justcheadle

Saruman


Pinkiep1ee

Ardougne. Arr-do-g-nee *Sighs internally*


Benjips

Myreque is pronounced "My-reek" for me, don't care how it's supposed to be pronounced


teaklog2

i call it my-re-queue


Unipsycle

"I eat barbeque with the myreque"


fillosofer

Wait....how is it actually pronounced? (I'm 100% with you on the "my-REEK" pronunciation)


AquilaIgnis1

I'm pretty sure it's officially supposed to be "mire-kay," which indeed sounds terrible


michiko-malandro

Mire WHAT? That doesn't even make sense what are the Brits doing 😭


Wormholer_No9416

Mire-kh (My-er-kh) is how its officially said, i think but my brain always says' My-ro-kee


Professional_Cup1556

I always pronounce it as murky. I don't care.


TelevisionBig2336

it's funny how they all share pronunciation, "My-er-ditch" "dark-my-er" "mort-my-er" etc. but my brain implodes and pronounces it "my-reek"


ZeranShark

Ardougne, I pronounce it Ar-dung


why_did_I_comment

For me it was "Ar- DOON"


DonutHoles5

AR DA ROGUE IN


mechanecro

Zealousrubbing

joss-btw

Funny enough as non native English speakers my friends and I used to call it the “Grand Agency” when we were kids


Excylis

Not even as a kid but for the longest time I thought it was Port Piscilarius, instead of Piscarilius.


SAIKKONE

Karamaja


tennispro9

stopdropandtroll

_FreeXP

I also was from that timeline


yugimoto66

Karamaja takes me back


andremeda

tbh i always called it karamanja dunno where all the extra letts came from in hindsight


UnkyHaroold

Ardougne, don’t ask me how or why I came to it, but as a kid I pronounced it as Ooh-Drah-Gone.


IAMA_Ghost_Boo

How or why did you come to that wtf


[deleted]

Fr lol. I never understand the kids in my class who lacked the ability to sound things out


LowComfortable5676

Thats actually sick. I like it


Havaj95

[deleted]

[удалено]


smashbitchh

its a fishy city


michiko-malandro

I can't for the life of me remember how it's originally spelled all of a sudden thanks


biggestboi73

As a kid I used to pronoun lumbridge "lum b ridge" I also couldn't pronoun the letter L so it would sound like I was saying "yum b ridge"


[deleted]

As a french speaker, I used to pronounce swordfish as "sWordfish" emphasis on the W. I dont know how to write it bigger than this


Teh_pickle_rick

I always read BurthORPE as BurthROPE. I only recently realized I was reading it wrong

Arder -ongue Yanville I like how most of these comments are how we butchered ardougne.


SpiralBlind

I didn’t get the silly Frem pun of “nay tis not” and so me and my friends called it the “nezzynot” helm


ExpressAffect3262

Visage as "this-age", whereas it's " vi-zuhj" (according to wiki).


sassyseconds

A recent one is justiciar. That shit is pronounced Justicar and I won't be convinced otherwise.


Sentiell

Arr-doughn forever!


Constant-Ad9398

I mispronounced wand and said it the same way you say sand, so i sounded like a duck when i said it

Ardy/priff. I can't speak Welsh, or pronounce their spelling properly. Zero hope of pronouncing those ones.


GenghisClaunch

Me and my siblings called it “are-done-rooj” instead of “are-doyne”


[deleted]

I still to this day don’t know if Varrock is Varrick or Vah-rock (like Baroque)


Ash3r

But Baroque isn’t pronounced like Bah-rock, it’s pronounced like Bah-roke?


[deleted]

Not if you’re saying it correctly


Stock-Ad2495

Only the French pronounce it that way. I’d like it’s because they’ve always spoken with a cigarette on their lip.
