The Lieutenant thing I'm the same way. To me it always sounds like they are saying Left-Tenant which makes me think there is a right-tenant. makes it worse when the phrase Right, Left-tenant pops up
I've always said wash as wahsh, despite that my mother has always said it as warsh. Though I do say creek the way she does, which is crick. and my brother insists on pronouncing ethernet as eh-thernet instead of ee-thernet as I do.
One of my roommates at school used to pronounce "wash" as "warsh". It took several months but I finally managed to train her to pronounce it without the "r" - "wa(ah)sh".
