Strange little post here for you fine folks, but I’m curious about something: Are there words in the English language that you simply cannot pronounce or say?
For me, it’s “specifically” or any variation of the word “specific.”
But what about the rest of you? What is that one word that you try to utter, yet it repeatedly comes out a bit wrong?
Years ago, I had a high school teacher who couldn’t say “aluminum” – Mr. Mazzino for any of you former West Siders – and I always thought it bizarre that he could not pronounce such a simple word. Then I realized that “specific” alluded my lips, being said more similar to “pacific” somehow, and I noticed he was not alone.
And I’m betting many of you out there face the same dilemma with a word or two. So spill the beans and let me know. I’m feeling nosey today!
