    What is this? Dr. Quinn, medicine woman? "The patient is dying of pneumonia." "Give him another poultice!" lol

    Examples: Sedwick Rd is pronounced Sedgewick Rd. And the people are so sure that it is correct that they even start spelling it Sedgewick.
    Careful. Worcestershire.

    Easy: it's a contraction of "What's this here sauce?" They respelled it to seem fancy.

    How about the nonsensical plurals? I mean when referring to the Zion Williamsons, the Grant Hills, and the Shane Battiers. To my knowledge there has only been one of each.

    A friend of mine grew up thinking A-1 sauce was AL sauce, like Al Jones or something...

    Yes. Every Al Sauce must come from the Al region of France. Otherwise it is A1.
