The other word is a lot cooler. I like how mozilla firefox has it underlined in red. Correction = catechisms. (o.O)
Glutathione - first time I saw it I pronounced it Glu-ta-thi-one (sounded like Glu-ta-taiwan)
When I try to say it it sound like ss...ss....ssssss yystein. I guess I pronounces it wrong xD
Here is one swedish word for you (try to say it if you dare!): Abekalerisk
Then let's continue with these strange and exotic words.... how about:
Antedivulianisk: "Very old"
Antvarda: hand over
Diatrib: polemic writing/text
Pokulera: drink / booze
Ooooohh the über-fail!

What kind of name is that? Why did they named the lake to that? Did a couple of Indians (?) or something sat by a campfire along time ago and thought "Let's drive the new strange people crazy by giving this lake a name they can't say! *evil laugh*". Or am I wrong?
This is the longest one I have ever met and it actually twisted my tongue badly.
The French language. x_x;
Edit: No one can ever seem to pronounce my name correctly.

"this is justice, that is also justice, that too is justice, they are all justice.

everyone get along, OK?"
I've found that if you say any word enough times in succession, you wonder how that word means anything. It sounds like just a bunch of letters mixed to make a sound; like it has no meaning. Take any word, such as 'word' or 'phrase' and say it a few times. Ten or more is a good start. Now it sounds totally strange.

Man! how is it pronounce anyway.... though it did make me laugh when the reporters covering the story tried so hard to pronounce it...
I tried over and over again to pronounce it but I always bit my tongue! Grrr!

I'll never be able to pronounce that correctly.

I find it initially difficult to pronounce words that are spelt somewhat differently to how they sound. For example, the word, "Scone" is easily (and more commonly) mispronounced as [skohn] (as in "Own") since the general rule is, when the vowel "e" is added to the last consonant in a word, it changes the sound of the preceding vowel in that word (in this case the letter "o"). The word "Scone" however is an exception to this rule as it's properly pronounced as [skon] (as in "Con"). However, in modern English both pronunciations of the word are now accepted (much to my disappointment).
Also, if, by chance I should just so happen to overhear someone say a word that I'm unsure of how to pronounce, my tendency is to go with their take on it instead. XD Which is all very well... unless, of course they mispronounce the word I'm overhearing as well.
On a side note, one more thing I felt like saying while I'm at it, although technically, what I'm about to say is not so much down to mispronunciation than laziness. Anyway, it seems like almost everyone I come across in England apparently has difficulty in "pronouncing" the word, "Zero" (One American word I do like as a matter of fact), tending to pronounce it as [oh] instead, as in the letter "O"; which drives me nuts, because "O" is a letter dammit! And that sort of thing screws up things like communication involving post codes. And like, when I ask someone their telephone number, they reply along the lines of, "Yeah, it's uhm... O7467721something". And my immediate mental response is, "What? "O"? You're supposed to be English right? So talk English!" Idk... I can generally forgive those who mispronounce words, but there's a difference between mispronunciation and laziness. And it really comes to something when foreigners in Britain actually speak better English than native English folk. Well, at least they get the basics right...
