Mispronuncialtion

It bothers me when professionals themselves cannot pronounce their own job title correctly.

The person that takes care of my dental hygiene is called a hygienist. The correct pronunciation is “hi-jeen-ist” (not “hi-jen-ist”). If you do not believe me, please check it out.

On another note, this image was hard to find because some people assume that all dental hygienists are female.
