funny words to say

Comment: This word has not moved far enough away from French to assume an English pronunciation, [mawv], and should still be pronounced [mowv].
Comment: We have been told that masons are most likely to insert a spare vowel into this word describing their occupation but we know others do, too.
Comment: Despite the spelling similarity, this word does not rhyme with despite; it is pronounced [‘re-spit].
Comment: Misanalysis is a common type of speech error based on the misperception of where to draw the line between components of a word of phrase.
Comment: The good news is, if you say "excape," you’ve mastered the prefix ex- because its meaning does fit this word.
Comment: Just think of an arc of ants (an ant arc) and that should help you keep the [c] in the pronunciation of this word.
Comment: Haplology is the dropping of one of two identical syllables such as the [ob] and [ab] in this word, usually the result of fast speech.
Comment: There is no greater cacophony [kæ’kafêni] to the ears than to hear the vowels switched in the pronunciation of this word.
Comment: The [i] in this word is so long there is time for another vowel but don’t succumb to the temptation.

Comment: Even in dialects where [r] does not always trade places with the preceding vowel (as the Texan pronunciations "differnce," "vetern," etc.), the [r] in this prefix often gets switched.
Comment: Just as "misspelling" is among the most commonly misspelled words, "pronunciation" is among the most commonly mispronounced words.
Comment: Playing a crown (coronet) will make you about as popular as wearing a trumpet (cornet) on your head; reason enough to keep these two words straight.
Comment: Syncopation of an unaccented vowel is fairly common in rapid speech but in careful speech it should be avoided.
Comment: Southern Americans are particularly liable to confuse these two distinct words but the confusion occurs elsewhere.

If you needed a good laugh today, here are 101 words that are funny to say.

This glossary contains three types of fun words: words that are unusually specific and therefore perfect for certain situations, like specious (seeming good or sound at first but lacking real merit) and apolaustic (wholly devoted to the seeking of enjoyment); words that are simply fun to say, like absquatulate (flee, make off; abscond) and quidnunc (a busybody or a gossip); and, my favorite, words for things you never knew there were words for, like omphalopsychite (one who contemplates his navel) and nothosonomia (the act of calling someone a bastard).

This is a list of word’s Dave has collected from around the web.

(See menu list on the left, including Index of Words.)  After all, some words just aren’t that funny, like dolphin, education, honor, and computer.  What do you do?  Well, there are several ways to make fun of any word… hence, any word is funny.  (Of course discretion demands that some words like cancer, lynching and genocide not be used in jest.)  Let’s suppose the word you want to have some fun with is proxy.

And you can bet the executives of the world’s biggest global water corporations, Suez and Veolia, won’t be uttering the word "remunicipalization" at their shareholders’ meetings this week and next.
Instead, they’ll be scrambling to explain why cities like Jakarta are taking steps towards canceling their private water contracts to put water back into the hands of the people.
With influential political leaders like Deputy Mayor Ann Le Strat championing public water, the city instated a new, public system two years later.
Now, across Paris, more low-income households have access to water and significant operational cost savings have lowered water rates by 8 percent.

Last night I read about someone who claimed to have taken "horse tranqs." I began saying the phrase "horse tranqs" aloud every so often and cracking up.
I was thinking today how funny the word "witty" sounds on it’s own.
Sometimes I’ll pick up on an acoustic quirk of a certain word and end up repeating it to myself fifteen or twenty times, at which point it loses all meaning and makes me giggle.
It’s not — it’s words that *sound* dirty, like "mukluk." Mukluk.

Source: ShutterStockRed WingsThis slang phrase refers to when a dude gives a girl oral sex when she has her period.
But you might not have heard of all of the crazy nicknames for oral sex yet and that’s where I come in: I’m here to fill you in on some of the funniest, weirdest and most ridiculous slang words for oral sex, cunnilingus in particular.
Source: ShutterStockChickenhead Okay, this doesn’t refer to cunnilingus – it refers to giving a guy oral sex.
Source: ShutterStockKneel At The AltarUmmm… how did this nickname happen? Is a vagina equivalent to an altar? Are they worshipping it? Okay, I can handle that.
There are tons of slang words for oral sex out there and I’m sure you’ve heard of the most popular ones (69, blowjob, give head, stuff like that).
Source: ShutterStockDigging For ClamsHonestly, I hate when people call a vagina a clam.

Hah, I go to school in Portugal, and I’m used to European Portuguese, and we have a Brazilian in the class and he speaks very different, for example: In portugal to say ‘Shut Up’, you say Cala-te but in Brazil you say te cala and the te is like ‘chi’ so he trys to speak European Portuguese and says ‘Calachi’.
Yeah, I learnt Portuguese at uni and we had a Brazilian lecturer who warned us about that one, theres a few like that where words in Portugal mean something very different to words in Brazil.
It can be "dangerous" to try to speak in Brazil Portuguese learned in Portugal and vice versa! The differences can be huge.

It is kicking my butt every single day (and I’ve always considered myself good at languages.) After two and half months in Germany I still feel like I am speaking like a beginner (or Kinder Deutsch as I say to people here.) This is partly due to German being very hard and partly due to most Germans being able to speak English (especially in a big city like Hamburg.) But, I refuse to give up! One of the ways I’m keeping German fun (because believe me, you need to keep German learning fun) is to learn slang, fun expressions and great sounding words.

Back then, I couldn’t wait to have all the advantages of adulthood but still continue to play video games, collect action figures and read fantasy novels like that cool dude Jason that rented a room in my mom’s house.
I find it’s better to let her pick the video because I know that when it’s my turn to find a two minute internet clip I will be judged based on my selection.
I have an idea for a libertarian super hero named, “The Invisible Hand.” His parents were killed by union organizers.

Funny quotes are also good for making other people laugh; posting one of these quotes on Facebook or Twitter is sure to elicit many chuckles from your friends and followers.
If you’re in need of a good laugh — and really, who isn’t? — then check out our list of the top 100 funny quotes of all-time.
Also included are interpretations, which attempt to explain just what makes each quote so darn funny– the interpretations also come in handy for that one clueless person who always says, “I don’t get it” in response to your hilarious joke.
First, because some quotes are based on interpretations themselves, which may be history and therefore useless for the natives, but not for foreigners; second, because the sense of humour varies and I like to understand how comes that sometimes quotes with no effect on me make you instead laughing loud.

Note that what people have been writing as "how-siz" is [ˈhɑ̟̆ŏ̯sɨːz̥]~[ˈhɑ̟̆ŏ̯sɨːs] and what people have been writing as "how-ziz" is [ˈhɑɔ̯zɨːz̥]~[ˈhɑɔ̯zɨːs] above.

how-sis? What American says that? Must be a weird regional thing; I’ve never heard any American say anything but "how-ziz" for houses.
The word "house"…..on an American TV program the other evening I heard the plural word "houses" being used.

OK, I know this is juvenile, but I think this word is awesome.  That mannschaft is very strong.  It is my favorite mannschaft.  See?  That never gets old.  Best of all, it also has the meaning ‘crew’ in the nautical sense, which means there’s a chance it might be possible to translate the pun in my favorite joke about submarines—you know, the one whose punchline is "long and hard and full of seamen".
