#PronouncingThingsIncorrectly is a language game popularized by Chaz Smith on Vine, a micro video-blogging platform. These mis-pronunciations show a number of interesting phonological processes. While these processes are not categorical—they are often disregarded in favor of humorous homophony, such as the pronunciation of "pop secret" as "poop secrete"— they are robust, productive and are an intriguing new source of phonological data.
