* The Stranger from ''VideoGame/OddworldStrangersWrath'' can form complete sentences, but speaks oddly and often has trouble getting the words out, with frequent stuttering pauses. [[spoiler:This is because he's a Steef, a species that's known for never speaking verbally. He never had to talk growing up, so he's new to the concept.]]

* ''Literature/RedSeasUnderRedSkies'': While Michael Page's narration of the audiobook is otherwise excellent, neither he nor his producer apparently knew about to pronounce "boatswain," as for half the book he pronounces it as it looks, "BOAT-SWAIN." Around the midway mark, someone apparently corrected him, as he switches from there on out to "BOH-zun," as it is traditionally pronounced.

* Every episode of '''The Guilty Feminist''' begins with the two hosts making humourous confessions beginning with the words "I am a feminist, but..." - outtakes in one episode reveal that they occasionally stumble over the line, turning it into "I am a feminist butt" to the great amusement of the audience.
