Many years ago I asked a friend of mine, “Do you know if anyone else is coming?” She immediately corrected me,”It’s not elts, it’s elsss.” Upon realizing I had been saying it incorrectly all these years, I stopped adding a “t” where there didn’t need to be one. Now whenever my husband says pultz instead of pulssss, it drives me batty. I also hear people add a mystery “h” to the word height, pronouncing it heighth. What words do you hear people misquote?

Thanks to Lifehacker for posing the original question.
