    A guy with a speech impediment once called me feckless instead of reckless. I laughed at him for sounding like a fat cartoon character with a lisp. Right now I feel like I was the one with the impediment...

    I actually thought esoteric had to do with philosophy. Damn lmfao I feel like a retard now. Though I can't say I've ever misused the word, it usually flies over people's heads as 'that smart people stuff'.

    Making the world literate one post at a time.

    Why don't you include phonemic transcriptions in the pronunciation part as well as the simple ones? I know phonemic transcription sounds ESOTERIC (YESSSS!!) to most people but it's really quick to learn and a lot of guys from here who went through college know it.
