On the mispronounciation tip: I found out from my mother (who just recently learned that 40 is not spelled fourty) that the word "respite" is not in fact prounounced like "despite" but like "respit".

It was un peu embarrassing, but I embrace my mispronounciations because if you have only read a certain word in books and not ever heard it spoken, then I think it's more of a comment of the vocabularies of those you surround yourself with than a comment on your own intellectual sensibilities.

Was that too bitchy? I haven't had my coffee yet.
