    Smile Which alphabet letters difficult to pronounce?

    From A to Z, I always find difficulty in pronouncing letter M and letter N. When people pronounced letter M or N to me, I also easily get wrong answer. How about you?

    I have some difficulty pronouncing the l/r sound of Japanese, but not any letters of my native alphabet.

    I agree with you because I'm also having hard time pronouncing letter L & R, seems like my tongue got twisted over saying those letters.

    In maths/physics I tend to use greek letters rather than the standard english alphabet; Mainly because I have no non-scientific associations with the greek alphabet, but also because I enjoy over-complicating things.

    One of the ones I use is quite awkward to pronounce: ξ. It is pronounced xi (well, ksi). I tend to stay away from α and β - too cliché for me!
