Awry

I have always been a big reader, and therefore I would frequently run across the word ‘awry’ in my readings. For some reason, though, I had separated the word I knew verbally (properly pronounced), from the word I saw in print, which in my head was pronounced AW-ree, until one day my sister asked me how to spell ‘awry’. I suspect the click in my head was heard as far as Sweden.
