Assuage

I do believe that for the first time in my life I actually said the word "assuage" today.

Which was unfortunate as I quickly realised that I didn't actually know how to pronounce it.

'Ass-wage' or 'ass-waj'? I don't know, so said both and hoped I was clear!

Funny how that happens sometimes. Have read it often enough and even used it in writing but never spoke it before today.

What wonderful word can I mangle tomorrow?
