Say it Right!!!

It's realtor; not realator. Get rid of the extra syllable!
It's voila (pronounced vwa-la); not walla. Get that V in there!
It's sherbet; not sherbert. Get rid of the extra R!
It's more THAN or rather THAN or better THAN, etc.; not THEN. If you use an A rather than an E, then you will be speaking correctly.

It's you all, not y'all. Enunciate!

There's a difference between screwing up a word completely and dialect. You will not find realator or sherbert in the dictionary. Y'all is there. Check it out - http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/y%27all.

So take that you enunciating yankee!

Hmmmm. Sounds like an editor....


(Of course, if one is referring to an event in the past, "then" is the entirely appropriate spelling)
