Everything Language and Grammar

Going Nucular

Posted by languageandgrammar on April 27, 2009

Richard Nixon once said, “…when the President does it, that means that it is not illegal.” Well, that might be true of wire-tapping without court-approved warrants and opening the mail of private citizens without legal consent (I know, I know, but I really am talking about Nixon, not about a more recent President), but I’m almost certain that it does NOT hold true for grammar, punctuation, and pronunciation errors.

NOW, speaking of former President Bush……while he consistently pronounced the word “nuclear” as NUCULAR, the word is pronounced the way it is spelled: NU-CLE-AR.

Enough said——-trust me.

    President Ford couldn’t pronunce nucular, so he used atomic instead.
