Mispronouncing native terms

Have you ever been unable to pronounce a word in your native language, due to confusing the pronunciation with that of a foreign language? For example, I just had a minor panic attack because I couldn't remember how to pronounce surveillance - I kept wanting to say the "ll" as an "ll" in Spanish.
