lol those are easy
it means "I must admit I don't have the faintest idea of what is going on."
As the other poster said, it's a word that is rarely used in speech. I haven't tried to pronounce it!
I find the word specific hard to pronounce. And in my mind I can tell the different between daughters and dollars when i say it it comes out the same...dollars. I don't know why.
A while back I found the word 'paradigm' to be annoying.. -__- for some reason it was everywhere at the time and I was going nuts. It eventually bothered me enough that I went and looked it up.
Lots of asian people cant say fried properly...
as in Flied lice
I can't say depreciation properly :(
water...without sounding like a retard
My parents say "free" instead of "three"
Most asians can't do the "th" sound.
I myself struggle with saying "think", my thinks always sound like dinks..... and my the sounds like da.
don't have any big problem, oh maybe yes, the word problem is one of my problem. b/cuz, i'm a canto ok, but my parents sent me to a french school and then in the french school, i learn english. But the problem is, i was in secondary 5, we're still learning about verbs .... past tense bla bla bla. i was like wtf ? and in french th word problem is problème. I always say problème and not problem lool
just go to dictionary.com and then subscribe to it, each day you will recieve a word that may likely be hard to pronounce and use?
When I am thinking of the word film, I can't pronounce the word "film" very well.
"Assume"... i kept saying "ash-ume" but it should be like "assuuuume"
And anything with too many Rs in it, my canto tongue have trouble getting around it..
i can pronounce any word with precision EXCEPT 'three'
thats the only word i can't say :( i pronounce it was 'free'
i think this developed from when i was younger and didn't know better and now that i'm older i can't fix it. i mean i can pronounce it but i can't use it in a sentence without pausing, saying the word, then resuming my speech. it sounds very unnatural so i avoid pronouncing it as it should
i found cantonese much harder to pronounce correctly than english
idk........cuz' that's my 1st language lol
it's hard to catch the correct sound i think, cuz my ABC cousins have some weird accent that sounds like they're from the countryside.
i can pronounce English fine, but here are some words i think i sound weird in pronunciation:
i say "like" is the hardest thing for me to say. its so hard for me to say "i like you" to a girl i like that's not my gf.
hardest word to pronounce for cantonese speaker should be any word has L and R. and for mandarin they have less of those L and R pronunciation problem
plagiarism.i can start but it's hard to finish it
lot of asians can't say rural right.
I think if you have a solid foundation in English - kid school (vowel, consonants, etc); pronunciation won't be that hard. With web dictionary these days, it can't be any easier.
