I cheated, by being American. We never misuse “monsoon” because we never use it at all. And all those hurricanes that never hit the UK, hit the US every year. Even if you live in Alaska, it’s on the news when Florida gets thrashed.
We use “monsoon” a lot in Arizona. I’m very careful about using it correctly, but do hear it misused a fair bit.
