I think it’s sort of funny that you imply that ‘axe’ is an improper way to pronounce ‘ask’, since ‘axe’ is the Middle English way to pronounce the word! (for example, from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales: ‘Axe hym thyself, it thou nat trowest me…’) So, one could argue that ‘ask’ is the incorrect pronunciation. (The excerpt is from the Friar’s Tale)
