I'll go first

skein. my way: skeen. everybody else: skane  Embarrassed

I don't know of anything that I say wrong, but I have plenty of people come up to me at work and ask me where the "muslim" is (when they want muslin)

I'm pretty sure you say "tulle" like "tool". I say "skein" wrong too, except I say "skine" which is way off!

How about "toile"?  I think that it's like "twa", but it sounds almost, well, naughty....

I think "toile" is pronounced twoll.  Rhymes with doll, not troll.  What I remember from French class is that you'd drop the L if it were spelled toil, but if it has an E on the end then you pronounce the L.

Yup, "twall" and "tool"

For some reason, more people get toile right and tulle wrong at my store...
