Another thing that happens -- mostly to people like children
and other learners of English -- is
not connecting the spelling of a word with its pronunciation.
For instance, it took me quite a while to figure out that the
word spelled "schedule" was a word I heard regularly.  "Colonel"
was another one. [I was just reading a very interesting tidbit
about why it is that we pronounce "colonel" as "kernel".]

Oh please, share the tidbit!
