Can you guess the word Americans struggle to pronounce most?

 

 


"Croissant" is No. 7 on the list of words Americans struggle the most to pronounce.
When you want quinoa at a restaurant, do you whisper your order for fear of mispronouncing it? When you find a bunch of peonies at the florist, do you simply point to the flowers so you don't stumble over their pronunciation?
If so, you're not alone: Quinoa and peony are among the words that Americans struggle most to pronounce, according to an analysis done by Dictionary.com. To develop this list, the website examined internal data on the number of audio plays for pronunciation that each word receives, as well as lexicographer research.
