    words you don't like to pronounce

    for me, it'd be vinyl and subtle

    among other things, i've been known to mess up with pronunciation on these words

    Ahh... I remember that... Sewj, Sewjezz (or Sojezz)

    One name I don't like pronouncing is Esther... I inadvertently say ether or ester... :lol:

    Reading books as a kid, there were some words I read, figured out the meaning for, but never pronounced right...

    For example, hideous

    I pronounced that hide-jous, or hijous, not hid ee ous... (I used to use the silent e rule every time, instead of just at the end of the word...)

    Edit:

    Pronunciation is one of those words too... I always think pronounciation (pronounce is a word of course)

    I can't for the life of me pronouce the word vegetable. I always slur it no matter what I do. It comes out sounding like veggibull. I used to say fegetti instead of spagetti and headick instead of headache.

    I have problems (as of late) pronouncing the word "hundred" correctly. For some unknown reason, it comes out as "hund-erd" and not "hund-red" unless I catch myself.
