    In fact the most difficult word for me to pronounce is anticonstitutionalistically

    I think the American way of pronouncing 'million' or 'williams' is hard to imitate, while the British way is much easier.

    Try saying 'The thesaurus is'.

    In the same way of "The thesaurus is" , there is: "There're three tea trees"

    Re: What word do you think is the hardest to pronounce???

    as for daily words I'm constantly correcting "usually" and "rival"

    my nursing college students have a hard time with "atherosclerotic plaque"
    70% of them never even get to "plaque"

    I still find "very well" hard to get right. A lot of times it comes out more like "very vell" which is extremely embarrassing. Very on its own is easy, so is well, but as a combo... Maybe it's a German thing.
