Problem Words


Posted by Wendy | Posted in Me | Posted on 22-07-2009


I’ve come to realize I have a speech problem. It’s not a certain letter or anything. It’s just that there are words that I cannot say. Sometimes, if I try real hard, I can spit them out correctly but most of the time I’m met with Dave giggling and re-pronouncing the word for me. Here are some of those words:

  • nuclear -I like to say nuke-ya-ler. Apparently so does my mom so I’m going to blame this one on her.
  • naivete – I say nie-ev-it-tee but apparently you pronounce it nie-eve-tay
  • poignant – My version: poig-nant. Official pronunciation: poin-nant
