Todays writing prompt for NaBloPoMo November is: what is the hardest word for you to say?
There are a number that are hard for me actually. I have always found certain words to be difficult to say. When I was a kid it was: M&M’s and dominos. Apparently I said these words completely wrong. I thought it was funny at the time when I couldn’t say the words properly. Well, even know I put some humour into it.
I’m not exactly sure why certain words don’t come out right. I can say them in my head ok, but when it comes out of the mouth – difficulty. There are some words that I will simply avoid, or practice them if I need to say them. The real funny part is that although I sometimes have difficult pronouncing things, the main skill that I need for my job is oral communication…..right. Even with trying to speak French, I say things completely the wrong way. I just can’t get the accent down at all.
So words that I know I have difficulty with: prerequisite and marsupial. There are many more, I just can’t think of them right now. Sometimes when I am reading something out loud to the class – I have to stop and try and think how to pronounce something. Most of my classes are used to it though 🙂
Alrighty, have a great Friday everyone!
