Language is tricky. Not only are there multiple ways to spell the same word, but there are silent letters, emphasis on certain syllables, and basically a bunch of ways to say common everyday words wrong.
And that includes food-related words. There's nothing awesome about trying to order some food or describe something you ate and having everyone look at you funny.
But it sounded so right in your head!
At any rate, hopefully this will help you out a bit...
