People reveal the most annoying mispronounced words

"Specifically" and "probably" are the most irritating mispronounced words.

A new survey of 2,000 people found 35 per cent said "pacifically" used instead of "specifically" was the most annoying mistake.

A quarter felt "expresso" instead of "espresso" was a major bugbear, while 19 per cent of people surveyed were irritated by "art-ick" being said rather than "arctic".
