* Ikea- is it pronounced with a long I sound, as in, Eye-Kay-Ah? Or with a short I sound, as in Eee-key-are? Apparently Asians prefer the latter pronunciation.

* The British pronounciation of "lieutenant" is "lef-TEN-ant".

* The British pronounciation of "lieutenant" is "lef-TEN-ant". This is actually an InvertedTrope because that's the wrong pronunciation while the Americans say it the proper way ("LYU-ten-ant"). The word is from French origins, with "lieu" meaning "place" and "tenant" meaning "holding" (as in, holding a position). Back in the Middle Ages, the U in some words was interchangeable with a V, so the word was initially pronounced as "LYEV-ten-ant" and finally, "lef-TEN-ant".
