Milquetoast is one for me.

"Present hole." We type it all the time on here, but I can only imagine the flabbergasted look on someone's face if it was said in polite society.

I was surprised to hear someone pronounce tumult as "toomult." I'd been saying "TUH-moolt." I prefer my way but I looked it up and I'm wrong.

Never heard anyone say eleemosynary out loud.

I've heard and said most of the ones on this thread so far.

Temblor. Used only in news reports. Quaff. Only in print media. I was about to quaff my beer when the temblor hit.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
