    So I was messing with the name Cortana calls me, and she wasn't pronouncing something right.

    You are give the option to fix this by speaking the words into the phone.

    When you ask Cortana your name, she says "you are name"

    So this leaves it open nicely for things like, who am I? "you are a legend"

    Because I spoke the a into the phone, now whenever Cortana says the word a in a sentence, there is a pause before she says it, so now it sounds pretty bad.

    I have tried the following, to clear Cortanas data, but this hasn't worked.

    1.Disable Cortana: Settings > Applications > Cortana > Turn Off
    2.Restart Phone
    3.Go back to Cortana Settings
    4.You should see an option to delete/remove all Cortana data

    I deleted both the Web and Local data.

    How can I get her to forget this bad habit she has picked up from me?

    Have you updated your name in Cortana so she'll call you something else?

    Yes, to various different things. She still pauses every time she uses the word a in a sentence.

    You have not properly read/understood my original post.

    So... I managed to fix it :D

    I simply had to speak the words to Cortana again.

    I thought speaking the words were causing the issue, and typing them in was the fix, but it appears it's the other way around.

    Much derpage :/

    As an aside, you can make her say some seriously funny **** when reading out text messages with this, just change a few verbs :p

    Wow, I guess that confirms what I have been noticing when Windows Phone was still using TellMe. I actually warn my friends not to let other people use their phones because it might be possible that their phone will not recongized their voice anymore.
