A moment ago I logged onto the web site of Merriam-Webster, to look up the pronunciation of the word, "nascent." The way I keep hearing it said just does not sound correct to me; it seems there are two correct ways to pronounce it.
At any rate, I noticed an advertisment on the front page for the top ten frequently searched words.
The most searched word is prententious. I couldn't help but think, "Really? People don't know what that means?"
Does that make me pretentious?
