There are some of the most mispronounced words in English language. One should take care of them well before speaking them out of the mouth. As said earlier by me, pronunciation is really a tough thing in the English language because of so many factors involved like silent letters, different usages, different traditional pronunciations and so on. They all influence these words which are often mispronounced by us, the people, and we do not even bother to know the correct pronunciation because we don't think about it and we can't think about it, because we possess a reflex feeling in our minds that we are speaking the correct way, and why then check it again. So I will be trying my best to enrich your vocabulary with good pronunciation by helping you out with some words which are often mispronounced. Not only this, but I will also be guiding you with the most frequently wrong pronunciations used for the concerned words.
