    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 cannot pronounce "three" it always comes out as "free"

      Not a word, but I can't make the ch ch sound when I am calling in my cats. I can do a few and then I end up slowing down more and more and then just find it impossible to continue making that sound.
