An increasingly rare speech impediment leading to a complete ignorance of how a word is spelt or pronounced by the vast majority of the population. This results in bizarre pronunciations missing out entire sections of a word and often in saying different words in exactly the same way.
- The words “really” and “rarely” are both pronounced “rehly”.
- The word “coward” is pronounced as “card”.
- ffeatherstonhaugh is pronounced fanshaw.
Victims are often to be found sitting in large leather armchairs by the fireplaces in gentlemans’ clubs. Secondary symptoms include a large red nose and an addiction to cigars.
