My friend who is a linguist says that people are terrible reporters of our own speech patterns. Apparently when you compare self-reported speech patterns to actual recorded speech, there's a fairly noticeable gap. Although the conversation we had was in context of word usage, and possibly with pronunciation it's a little bit different.

-deborah, who says COR-a-lary
