I was sitting with my mum watching television last night and on the program we were watching they kept pronouncing the ‘g’ in ‘dinghy’. Outraged, I turn to my mum and say, ‘What the hell do they keep saying it like idiots for?’
Mum looks at me like I’m a moron and says, ‘They’re pronouncing it correctly.’
Me: ‘No they’re not! The ‘g’ is silent! I’ll show you!’
I proceed to google the pronunciation for ‘dinghy’ and then fall silent.
Mum looks to me and asks, ‘Well?’
Me: ‘…it’s just my accent.’
Proceed to run away, run away Monty Python style.
