I might as well get a few more off my chest:
- Divisive is pronounced di-VISE-iv, not di-VISS-iv.
- Formidable is best pronounced FOR-mid-a-bl, not for-MID-a-bl.
- Applicable is best pronounced APP-li-ca-bl, not a-PLICK-a-bl.
- Mischievous is pronounced MISS-cha-viss, not miss-CHEE-vee-us.
You may want to pick a fight with me over formidable or applicable, and I’m prepared to concede that regional differences may account for the proliferation of what I consider inferior pronunciations of those words. But I will yield no ground on divisive or mischievous, the mispronunciations of which I consider simply indefensible.
