when a person pronounces a word incorrectly and another person corrects them; the most common occurrence is when one pronounces the French origin of the word forte (referencing to one's strength) as the Italian origin.
Person A: I like running; running is my forte (fawr-tey).
Person J: Don't you mean "running is your forte (fawrt)".
Person A: Yeah, I can't believe I got face'd so bad.
Person J: It is not your fault that you have a mental handicap.
Person A: True. Thanks for taking me out of the allegoric cave and showing me the light.
