    I think we all have those words we either can't say correctly or even at all

    For me, its burglary. No matter how many times I try and say it, it always comes out as 'burger-ally'

    It also took me ages to be able to properly pronounce amidst. It always came out as 'a-missed"

    I can't pronounce "the" properly or names with "the" in. I don't even know why. It becomes Fhe or Vhe.
    But it's not so noticeable TBH.

    I also can't pronounce philosophical properly aha.
