Are you a mispronouncer?

Hello! I consider myself as one of that kind of people. With the soundings...lol. Some words I pronounce it according to what I have learned in my native country and not as what it should be properly pronounce [slang]. It is just out of confusion. Like with the word of her, here and hair and other words of course..lol. That was why sometimes I rather write because I am more comfortable with it than saying some words that I am not really sure how to say it. It is annoying sometimes that I know what I am saying or trying to say but the person I am talking to keep asking "what?" "I am sorry, what did you say?" lol I have to repeat it again for them to understand. It is because of my accent. I am a filipina and currently residing in US..My husband said, if I talk slowly he could understand every word I say, but when I get tense or excited maybe out of 10 words, there are only one or couple words he can understand

Yes I am, just like jstmarfz wrote that we have this confusion thing on what is the right pronunciation because we learn it here in our native country especially some medical words or just some basic words like the word "SALT" some people would read it as "sOlt" while others "sAlt". In some cases I heard other people read "Eagle" as "e-gol", so basically it would be case to case basis.
