Mad respeck.

For non-English speakers, certain words have caused them quite a pickle when it comes to pronouncing it right. Add that with a tinge of local dialect/accent, and you’re bound to get some hilarious results.

English very the powderful!

In a 15-second TikTok video by @tomtomisacat, it showed her father confidently trying to teach her how to pronounce certain English words, albeit wrongly.

Here’s a list of words he tried teaching his daughter:

  • Diabetes = ‘die-beti’
  • Sushi = ‘saw-sish’
  • 100 Plus = ‘har-red plah’
  • Sausage = ‘sho-sed’
  • Cholesterol = ‘carol-john’

However, what made the clip all the funnier was how confident @tomtomisacat’s dad was in his pronunciation, where he even chided her by asking her whether she actually knows the language while pronouncing “bus” as “ba”.
