My parents told me that when I was just learning to read, I said "Egypt" with a hard g.

Many, many, words. I learned a lot of my vocabulary through reading, rather than listening. I often used to get stress location wrong in Latinate words, and sometimes still do in Grecian, and I think I misread a few anglo-saxon not-what-you'd-expect vowel digraphs, though I can't remember any off-hand. I used to metathesise 'enmity' and 'inexorable'.

I continue to pronounce 'satiety' incorrectly as a point of principle, damnit...

I used to pronounce enigma as [ˈɛnɪgmə].

Many, many words, ranging from expected spelling pronunciations (/ˈliːəˌpɑrd/, /Θeɪmz/) to L1 prosodic interference (descendant as /ˈdɛsənˌdænt/) to very roundabout analogical mixups with other languages (early as /jɑːrli/, by influence of earl as /jɑːrl/, by influence of Swedish jarl).

I used to say "epitome" /'ɛpɪtəʊm/, "advertisement" /'advətʌɪzmn̩t/, probably some others.

Whenever I see "meme," I read it out as [mɛm] in my head, because I think of French même, too. I also used to pronounce epitome ['ʔɛpɪtʰoʊm] and still pronounce advertisement [ˈʔæd̚vɹ̹tʰaɪzmn̩(t̚)] (or maybe I have glottal stops on both sides of the word).

According to my mom, when I was tiny, I said "remote" like "merote".

I still have no idea how 'alveolar' is pronounced. With -jə-?

@Sal: IIRC Tocharian (maybe TA) had regular metathesis of -mn- to -nm-. This does not go over well with my aesthetic intuitions.

@Vijay: "Advertisement" *is* /ˈædvɚˌtaizmənt/. I don't know how else anyone would pronounce it.

Oregon. No one from the Midwest or East Coast knows how to pronounce it correctly which is apparently a large source of humor for Oregonians. We are taught /'O`.rI.gan/ but it's actually /'O`.rI.gIn/ or even /'O`.gIn/ in informal speech. So I had to relearn that one.

"Meme" I also used to pronounce as French "même" but I've corrected that one since.

I had to correct my pronunciation of the Montana city Helena. I always said /h@.'leI.n@/ but it's actually /'hE5.lI.n@/.

I've never bothered to pronounce Edinburgh properly. I would probably botch most English place names though I have learned a few like Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and Leicestershire. But I'd probably still manage to botch them.

I decided to relearn some French pronunciations of Belgian place names so I didn't sound like I studied French in France. Both Bruxelles and Anvers (Antwerp) are pronounced differently by the French and by the Belgians and of course I learned the French variants. The French is /'bRyk.sEl/ and /'A~.vER/. The Belgian variants are /'bRy.sEl/ and /'A~.vERs/.

I still find it hard to pronounce melee as anything other than [mi:li:].

Recently:

Melanin [məl.'ʌ.nɪn] > [me.'læn.nɪn] which makes its pronunciation in line with melanocyte and melanogenesis.
