When I was little, hearing songs in other languages, I honestly thought they were just making noises with their mouths along with the music. I knew other languages existed but I often found these songs in English dubbed animes so I thought the people that made it English, so I thought the noises that were actually Japanese lyrics, were straight up just noises.
My friend told me that "namreg" was "moron" spelled backwards, and i believed it until my mom said it wasn't
When i was like five, I was convinced that an antelope was something you put letters in.
As a little kid I used to think that gazebos were called "Azibos"(like the character Azibo from Panwapa).
I never saw the word "gazebo" spelled out so the first time i did, I thought it was pronounced "gayz bo" and that it was a separate word from "Azibo", until i tried to draw a picture of one and spell the word below it.
I used to believe that "pathetique" was a fancy way of saying "pathetic". When i said something is pathetic, i said in a fancy voice "Yes, that is soooo pathetique"
i used to think that schadenfreude was a "nazi word" and if you said it, you had to say heil hitler. my older sister loved messing with me, untilr my mom saied that nazi is bad
I used to confuse the words "dive" and "drown" for some reason. Once, me and my sister were swimming in a pool and I told my mom in a rather excited manner: Look, my sister is drowning!
When i was 3, my 10 year old cousin said she had piano lessons and couldn't play with me.
For some reason, i thought that piano was a type of a game you play on a table, like chess or checkers. My cousin was confused when i asked her where the "pinanno"(how i pronounced "piano") game was. Then when i told her she said she had "pinnano" lessons and couldn't come over, she laughed and told me what it really was. I felt stupid.
I never had a piano in my house, only a toy keyboard, so that's probably why i never knew what it was.
I've been deaf all my life. When I was little, I used to feel sorry for people who couldn't speak sign language and had to communicate by moving their mouths into funny shapes. I thought there was something wrong with their hands.
I used to believe that the saying "2 wrongs don't make a right" was "2 wongs don't make a white"
I used to believe that L-M-N-O-P was 1 letter, pronounced elemenopee
I used to think that N was a special letter because it was in the alphabet song twice(L-M-N-O-P and W-X-Y-N-Z)
I used to believe that LMNOP in the alphabet song was "elemental p" and i didn't understand why it was "elemental" p and what elemental means
l used to believe that lowercase I is an l.
I used to think that fetish meant phobia. I was afraid of bare feet and when i told people i had a feet fetish, they would take their shoes off and stick their feet in my face which freaked me out. I just thought that they did that to scare me, because i didn't know what a fetish was. That was in 3rd grade, when i didn't know that much about fetishes
I used to believe that L-M-N-O-P was one letter, pronounced ellamenopee, because they say it fast in the alphabet song.
I used to think the LMNOP part of the alphabet was, elemenopee.
I used to believe that a germaphobe was a "germanphobe", someone who is scared of Germans. I overheard a conversation between my mom and someone on the phone and she said "germaphobe". I would wonder why someone would be scared of Germans, maybe because of their accent or something. I dunno
I used to think that when someone(usually my dad), was saying "Pardon me", they were saying "Part me" because they said it fast and I didn't find out until I was 12.
I used to think that when someone said "Good grief", they were saying "Good greep"
