    I use a few of these on a daily basis in conversation. No one understands me; it's annoying, really.

    There are more, but I'm busy at the moment.
    Haha, that's no good. I know what all those mean. Let's be friends? (XD)

Talking in france or in chinese where the language is more "soft" is a real struggle for me sometimes when I try. But yeah.... I guess my problem is the problem for most people. Your own language is easy but everyone elses is some strange gibberish.


    ----

    Strange words? hm...... I don't come to think about any right now.. But I know some people think that swedish words is "funny" sometimes.

    Here is btw a link to a thread where people talk about "strange swedish words" http://www.communityofsweden.com/forum/topic/?topic=316

    Apperently the word "jordgubbar" (strawberry) is a very very very strange word since jordgubbar means earth men. (earth + men = jord + gubbar).

    Or how about the word vegetables? In swedish: grönsaker, "green stuff". green/grön stuff/saker


    Did you know btw that we swedes have a word that you pronunce my breathing in instead of out? Just breathing air in really fast so it makes a "hooooo" sound means: okey *thumbs up*


    How about this famous line from Star Trek: First Contact
    "Borg? Sounds Swedish!" (after awhile) "Definitely not Swedish"
    xD

    "sounds swedish" turtle style!

    Interesting. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah. I see a lot of variations for the word "psycho": sycho, ciko, pscycho, psicho, etc.

    Hard to pronounce: Well I know there are harder words to pronounce but only "catechesis" comes to mind. Just learned it earlier. It's from a Greek word. The "e"'s are not pronounced as long e's.
    COOLLY! Lol, that's funny sounding to me.
    The other word is a lot cooler. I like how mozilla firefox has it underlined in red. Correction = catechisms. (o.O)

    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
    Sol, vind och vatten är det bästa som jag vet
    men det är på dig jag tänker i hemlighet
    Sol, vind och vatten, höga berg och djupa hav
    Det, är mina drömmar vävda av

    Full song, click, and text and translation to the song above, click.

    Then let's continue with these strange and exotic words.... how about:

    Antedivulianisk: "Very old"

    Antvarda: hand over

    Diatrib: polemic writing/text

    Maruffel: boor

    Pokulera: drink / booze

    Hahahahaahahahha! I don't think that I will even try to say that word! xD
    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?

    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.

    Default Re: Words that are difficult to pronounce or just strange in general.

    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...

    But, we get lazy all the time when we talk. For example, in America at least, how many people actually pronounce the "tt" in "button"? I don't, and not many people do...
