I did it with facetious. I knew about the spoken word but thought the written down word was something else (facet-us) although I can't remember what I thought that meant

I thought every Sean I heard was spelled Shawn, and that when I read Sean, it was pronounced See-awn, despite uh..never hearing that pronunciation out loud.

when i was a kid i was reading the Creepshow comic and it had a line-broken "bastard" so it was like

You bas-
tard!

i pronounced it right but didn't get that it was one word, so i was imagining someone being called a "bass turd" essentially. which i thought was funny so i read it aloud to my mom, who was none too pleased.

heir pronounced like hair

it was real rough being a kid that loved to read

this is more “obvious” if you speak french, or otherwise pay attention to constellations, but the name ursula is just a diminutive of ursa that means “little bear.”

the reason old people tend to put too many spaces at the end of sentences/between words when typing things is because they used to use typewriters and you'd have to double space to get a gap in there!
