The "literally " example is the one that always gets me.

I don't make these mistakes, but I`m also not a douche to those that do.

I have literally never heard anyone say 'short-lived` with a long `i.` In pronouncing it that way you manage to sound pretentious and uneducated at the same time, regardless of how much you "respect the language," or how "proper" it is.

Well I'll be damned. I didn`t know that. Thanks Ollie.

I`m still going to keep pronouncing it with a short i though, because the other way just sounds really weird to me and I`ve never heard a single person say it with a long i. Must be a regional thing but everyone says it with a short i here.
