They are if you're German ;)
I think I might know a bit about German prounciation, as it's one of our three national lanuages, and the vowel in 'quatsh' and 'kvetch' (unless I pronounce kvetch the wrong way) is not pronounced the same. :scholar:

It might have something to do with the fact a part of Germany was allocated to Belgium after WW I. ALthough I do believe there was some relocalization between France and Germany too and they only have one national language. Hmmm, Belgium is a special country. :P

Hmm. That reminds me (the idea of someone always mispronouncing a word, that is).

For some bizarre reason I have never figured out, instead of saying "somersault", my mom always says "tumbersauce".

Your mom is not alone by doing that. The same procedure is applied frequently in this family, by some of us a bit more than the other. :pleased:
I can't post any of them here though because they're all in Flemish and they'd lose their meaning when translated to English. :suffer:
Actually, most of them are not really mispronounced but words we thought up that are slightly different from the original and on itself mean absolutely nothing. 8)

Hee! Nice to know it's not just my mom that does that sort of thing. :D

Most of the time her mispronunciations are at least related to the intended word. But tumbersauce is just... out there.

Anyone else's moms also have a tendency to repeat the same story more than once in a conversation, *without* remembering they said it already? My mom does this all the time. I swear, we can talk for like, an hour, and only 20 minutes of it will consist of original material. The other 40 is taken up by her reiterating said material in various ways. And she doesn't seem to realize she's doing it.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Heh, I know a lot of people that do that. :P  Usually I stop them right away by saying "Oh yeah!  You told me that already."  XD
