It has been 20 years given the first Harry Potter book was published and 16 years given the first film, but revolutionary fans are still pronouncing one pivotal word wrong.

Yes that’s right, there’s still much to learn in the school of magic and wizardry.

Throughout the whole 9 books (soon to be 10) we were always led to trust that the smallest silver in the wizarding world: knut, had a wordless K.

Just like knife, knock, believe and knuckle, we suspicion it too was oral as ‘nut’.

But apparently we have been wrong for almost two whole decades.

Harry, Ron and Hermione have been spending their Galleons, Sickles and ‘Ca-nuts’.

Harry Potter fans have been pronouncing 'knut' wrong this whole time

I know right? Mind blown.

According to the lexicon, the silver is actually conspicuous as ca-nut.

This is almost as crazy as the time J. K. Rowling told the universe that Voldemort had a wordless T!

But as she certified she was the only one who conspicuous it that way, because don’t we hang with job Knuts, nuts and leave ‘Ca-nuts’ behind with Voldemor(t).
