I've been told when I say "bathroom" it sounds like "baffroom" and it can come out that way if I'm not speaking carefully.

I used to have trouble pronouncing my D's so when I said something like "dream" it sounded like "jream". I still have to be careful not to do that.

This form of pronunciation is pretty much the norm in some parts of London, especially the East End.

Bogan Australians pronounce it "barfroom", which is an accurate description of one of it's uses.

I can't pronounce "th" sounds, so I say it like that. I also can't pronounce "wr" sounds.

I always call it "bathroom". Well, sometimes I call it "washroom". Washroom makes more sense when it's a public room and there are sinks but no bathtubs.

Some people where I live have an accent where they pronounce "th" like "t", so it sounds like they're saying "bat room". Batman would not like being here. :batman:

My daughter (autistic) does. She also pronounces month, "momf". She can say it as people expect to hear it, but it takes great effort and sounds incredibly awkward as she has to say each phoneme separately.

I used to as well as SH, CH, PH, S, & Z. I was in speech therapy till I started high-school & it got better.

My "th" sounds are always pronounced as "f".

However, depending on what I'm going to the baffroom to do, I often call it "The bog".

That's pretty normal in many places. I do it as well.

i suppose a baffroom could be a dedicated room storing the human b-cell activating factor proteins/cytokines, or tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 13B, if you prefer. a ligand for receptors TNFRSF13B/TACI, TNFRSF17/BCMA, and TNFRSF13C/BAFF-R.

Can't say I have that problem or ever had that problem. I knew a few people that did though. Only on some words the "th" disappears but thats mostly during very spirited moments where I'm just shooting my mouth off about some stuff.
