[I challenge you to try and say those words without making the little ksssss and tsssss sounds. It just bounces off off your teeth and tongue. I've been trying for several years now to say those words without dragging out the "s" in a bouncy way, and it's impossible! Impossible I tell you.]

It's not impossible... if you lost your front teeth in a terrible desk accident, breaking them on a falling cask of coconut husks, which was full from the task of extracting moisturising cream for breasts too long basked in the sun.

Thanks for bringing it up, you cruel git.

I think you need those little ksssss and tsssss sounds, James. What I need help with is pronouncing "asked." I've "assed" more people than I care to remember.

I thought maybe there was some kind of connection between those words but I guess not.

I can't say breasts aloud without my husband thinking I'm propositioning him.

Me too! And I thought it was just my hubby. Must be a guy thing.

That's not as bad as people who say 'aksed'. That annoys the hell out of me.

Sounding like "axed"?

Yup. That's the pronunciation. Like my grandmother says "risk" instead of "wrist". Old world language.

Ugh. I hate it when people say "axed" instead of "asked". My dad always used to add an extra "r" into things: "warsher" instead of "washer", stuff like that. Drove me crazy.

Oh! or when people are singing and say "choo" instead of the last letter of the previous word and "you". Is it really that hard to enunciate the words? :)

Supposedly here in RI the people have terrible language. Axed, Bubblah, Idearr.

And I thought that was a southern drawl thing! Bama folks talk in much the same way but with a slur. LOL

Nope, not just a southern drawl. Supposedly we're famous for our terrible accents, and the way we give road directions. "Turn left by the bridge that was torn down 5 years ago... and then turn right again where the pharmacy used to be."

I'm going to remember that if I'm ever in your neck of the woods - take a map.

How about "ellipsis?" It sounds like something Gollum would say.

At school I knew a girl who couldn't say 'r's'. No kidding!
People always used to ask her to say 'wheelbarrow'.

It sounded so funny :)
