I think it's time to update the list of nonwords that people pronounce so badly, you know they have no idea how they are actually spelled. This is because I got this email from Library Squirrel:
"This morning, I was at a meeting with a woman who makes way more money than I do, who kept using the word 'half-hazard' when she meant 'haphazard'. It was very distracting.
I kept thinking how good it would be in your list."
Then I heard someone use the non-word "high-bred" (hybrid). As in, "I want one of those new high-bred vehicles."
It's not going to go away, is it?
