I agree Arbold. I googled to see how many others have a problem with this. Every episode it's used, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. I'm watching an episode with Amy Farrah Fowler in it... and MOST CERTAINLY she would know the correct pronunciation AND would correct Sheldon for it. Considering how well-written the show is and how they go to great lengths to point out things like commonly misunderstood facts, etc., you'd think they would insist on using COH-it-us. Strange.

Why do all those educated people mispronounce "coitus"? If it were only Sheldon I might have thought some sort of joke but all of them screw it up
