    OH, i just simply cant pronounce it because of the combination of s and p/tr --> so i end up stuttering.
    Thing gets worse when the stress is on the third syllable like specifically. When the stress is on the first syllable like specific, its abit better

    Thats why i usually avoid to use these words
    THanks
