SIRI trains to your voice so it improves over time. At first, speak slowly and enunciate dach syllable clearly. "Rest ah raunt" not "restraunt". It will start understanding you better and you'll start speeding up. Words with odd spellings (like Leigh) might not be pronounced correctly. I conform to her text to speech pronunciation.
To make it easier to find contacts, give you most common ones a nickname which is an extra field that can be added to each contact record. Instead of saying my AdH's full name I made his nickname hubby. Now I say "call hubby mobile". Quicker, easier to enunciate.

I had a link with all the funny expressions she comes up, but out of several on the web page, there is always one that uses foul language. OH well, I'm going to compose a bunch of questions for DH and I will share them here.
Wow, Siri works much better for you. She never understands what I say. She never gets the right person to call or even the name of the city I live or want to get restaurant / business info. Siri is much worse than the old voice system iPhone 3GS had.

"I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying." - Tom Hopkins
I asked her where her microphone was and she said" I'm sorry, I can't divulge that information". I asked her what my name was,and she said"you're asking me, Pam". She is lots of fun and of course, usefull too.

To have Siri set a reminder, tell her to remind you to do something. She will ask a few questions and then set up a reminder with an alert. For example, if you don’t want to forget to send your boss a birthday wish, you can say to Siri, “Remind me to wish my boss ‘Happy Birthday,’” and Siri will ask you what day your boss’ birthday is on. If you’ve added your boss as a relationship in your contacts, Siri will add a reminder that reads, “Wish Bill Smith ‘happy birthday’ on July 8.”
You can also have Siri send you location-based reminders. If your personal contact information includes the address of your work or home, you can tell Siri to remind you to call your wife when you leave the office. When you get away from your office, Siri will send you an alert to call your wife.
Siri can also set meetings and other calendar events for you. If you have a conflicting schedule, she will be sure to let you know and ask if you want to reschedule one of the appointments. For example, if you want her to put your upcoming dentist appointment on your calendar, just say, “I have a dentist appointment on May 5 at noon.” If you are already supposed to have lunch with your high school friend, Siri will ask if you would like to reschedule your lunch date.
The best way to figure out what Siri can do for you is ask her. Ask what movies are playing tonight, or whether it is supposed to rain tomorrow, or who won the White Sox game. Siri will have an answer.
She also has a sense of humor and will give witty, goofy, or profound responses to some questions. For example, if you ask her what the answer to life is, one of her
various answers is “42.” Douglas Adams fans will understand that reference.
You can ask Siri to “Open the pod bay doors,” and she will respond, “I’m sorry Lory, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” If you have ever seen “2001: A Space Odyssey,” you’ll know why not.
There are various websites that are dedicated to some of the humorous things Siri says. You’d be surprised at what Siri comes up with. Go ahead and ask her what she looks like, or what her favorite color is.
