Do you also mispronounce these words?

What do you say to the urinating device? And to the mixture of different unpleasant ingredients? Right words.

How we talk

In this note we come to “unburr” or “disastrate”. Yes, to take the donkey away from  those who mispronounce a few words , without knowing it. Those who have taken as correct the mention of some words and who, after reading this note, will be gawked. Like this humble editor was once, when he found out. Let's start.


Public men's bathroom. For urination we have the toilet or the  mingiorio.  Yeah, you probably told him all your life, without the middle “n”. Well, now you know, get used to it. The dictionary says that a mingiorio is “an object used to urinate, usually located in male public baths.”


The following is a word used to refer to the mixture of some unpleasant ingredients. But it also applies, for example, when someone wants to give an explanation, but never gets to the point. And it gets tangled. And it doesn't end. And mix data and things that have nothing to do with it. He's making  a little bit . Yeah, not a menjunje. At least, that's the way the  Royal Spanish Academy accepts. Which, in fact, defines mejunje as a “liquid or pasty substance made up of various ingredients and offering a strange or unpleasant appearance, taste or smell.”


Another case is when we want to refer to outdoor, outdoor. For example, we want to tell you that we spent the night sleeping on a rock on the side of the river. We say we slept in the  open , not in the interperie. The middle letter is the “m” and not the “r”. The books define the weather as “exposed in the open air, without roof or protection.”


Finally, the most controversial. If you already know how to pronounce it, I'm sure you had an argument with someone who stood up for the word that was pronounced as she said. Gentlemen and gentlemen, it's called  telgopor , not tergopol. In fact, the second concept does not exist. In fact, the manuals say that telgopor is the name by which expanded polystyrene is known in Argentina. And it is clear that this same material acquires other names depending on the country: it can be found as technopor, icopor, isopor, duropor, polyfoam, polyespan, foam plast or white cork, to name a few possibilities, but never tergopol.

Well, now you're ready to  talk c  o  rrectly . But eye. Let it not be very clear that you have just learned about the pronunciation of these words. That is, don't go out and say that you have to replenish the telgopor from the ceiling of the bathroom where the mingitorio is, because it is out in the open and there has been a good deal with the wind and the leaves. Because, more than a scholar, you're going to look like a fool.
