Embarrassing Mispronunciation

Apparently, I read a lot more than I listen to the spoken word. Once, when talking with my mother, I used the word "ascertain." Grammatically, I had it right. Verbally...well...I pronounced it "uh CER tin." My mother never let me forget it and laughed at me mercilessly, which I completely deserved because I was in my twenties at least, and in college, when I did it.
