Coming from a predominantly Jewish background, I grew up pronouncing the word 'hummus' with an accent. My friends usually catch me on that, saying I pronounce it wrong. Disagreeing, this prompted us to look up some words that people pronounce differently.

1. Crayon vs. "crahn"

2. Gyro vs. hero

All in all, it doesn't really matter. What's most important is that you keep your may-ah-naze away from my sorbet.
