Some of the words I hear on occasion need some tweaking, in my opinion. Here are some examples:
Gums (as in teeth) are not "gooms". You don't say "I'm having some goom," do you?
Skun is not the past tense of skin. You do not "skun" out a deer, unless you precede the word with "I dun". Skinned.
Insurance--put the emphasis on the right syllable-- in SUR ance, not IN surance. Get it?
Guarantee. I don't care how the people in the south say it, it's "gare-en-tee" not "gahr-un-tee".
Now I feel better.
