Mispronunciation Nation

I had a plan. Americans love mispronouncing words. In an effort to make Americans seem smarter (Editor’s Note: You aren’t), I was planning to champion the cause to make the word “supposably” an acceptable alternative pronunciation for supposedly in common parlance. Americans mispronounce it that way all the time. As a significant social media influencer through this blog (Editor’s Note: He’s not), I planned to use “supposably” whenever possible. Supposably, this should have worked. See how easy that was?

Except, supposably is an actual word. Take a look …

So, “Jim is supposably a successful blogger” is correct either way. (Editor’s Note: Supposably correct, but false)
