What's in a name
With only three letters in my first name, you'd be surprised at the number of mispronunciations I've heard. Over the years, I have learnt that for non-meaningful conversations, it's just not worth my time to correct the mistake.
As the global beacon of multiculturalism, Australians themselves are actually pretty woeful when it comes to language. While English appropriates and steals words, the Aussie tongue doesn't respect the many accents and unique sounds it borrows, and instead often masks it with the typical outback drawl.
But it's changing, except in the backyards of the uneducated close-minded simpletons who ironically all have roots from overseas. The island syndrome is in full effect, but that's no excuse.
