The names of America's preeminent infectious disease expert and its incoming vice president have topped this year's list of most mispronounced words.

Anthony Fauci and Kamala Harris are among a number of famous names that made the list released Wednesday.


The U.S. Captioning Company, which captions and subtitles real-time events on TV and in courtrooms, has been compiling the list with Babbel, a language-learning app company, since 2016.

Todd Ehresmann, a senior linguist at Babbel, said the list, unsurprisingly, reflects a year dominated by presidential politics and the coronavirus pandemic.
