The one where cynthtastic gets in a fight with her dictionary

Ire. Dire. Fire. Wire. Hire.

These words, to me, rhyme with dyer, higher, (Richard) Pryor, and to me, all of these words have two syllables a piece.

Not so!

The first five are one-syllable words. Apparently, my accent forbids me from pronouncing them correctly because, despite my best efforts, I can't make them monosyllabic.

This is something I'm going to have to learn to accept.
