Fine. I'll grant you my dialectical pronunciation of coupon "might" be wrong. However, Tuesday is not spelled toosday, nor should it be pronounced as such. Tongue Have you watched my accent tag? Totally not pretentious. If anything, I got nervous and said umm a lot to annoy everyone.

Haha, I don't think pronouncing Tuesday as Tyoosday is pretentious. Nobody around here does it though.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

My mother was Canadian and was a stickler for correct pronunciation and she made us kids say Tyoossday instead of Toosday. She also made us say the word "been" the way it's spelled not like the ben as in Ben Stiller. "Been" should rhyme with "teen", after all it's spelled the same way except for the first letter. I also grew up saying "winTer" with a t sound instead of slurring it into the word "winner". There were a few other words she instilled in us kids but I can't think of them just now.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I picked up saying Tyoosday when I lived in Australia.

People breathing so it can be heard. I know that kind of sounds like I want people dead, but I don´t! Just don´t do it so loudly!

I was thinking just now. "ue" doesn't always sound like "eyoo". Blue, gruesome, accrue, cruel for example. I don't know if T"yoo"sday has more or less correctness than T"oo"sday.

We will learn Yank English when you people start spelling words correctly.
