Today I tried and failed, with three different dictionaries, to convince our English teacher that the "b" was pronounced in "subterfuge".
Our. English. Teacher.
Well, she could be worse.
The intern from the local university didn't even know what the stupid word meant until she found it on our middle school spelling list.
Not all the teachers are so bad, though. You have to admire some of them. After all, it really takes guts to do things like apologize for making a test too hard.
Sarcastic? Me? No!
