2. Nuptials

How many times have you heard or said the word nuptials as "nup-shoo-als" and didn't think anything of it? Where did we get this "shoo" from? While the phonogram "ti" is known for making a "sh" sound in words like notion and action, there is no "oo" following it in those words nor is there in nuptials. The proper way to way the word is "nup-shuls."
