    Gnu.

    Do you say it "Guh-noo" or just "Noo"?

    For a long time I thought Iguana was pronounced "Ig-you-ah-na" too but think it's really "Ig-wah-na".

    At least they are unusual words though. I hate it when someone says ordinary words wrong, like "Boccles" instead of bottles or "lickle" instead of little.

    I can't say the name Isla. Unless I think really hard about it, it always comes out as Is-la.

    There is a suburb in my city called "Remuera" which I can never say. Luckily I don't live or work in the suburb so I'm not having to say it an awful lot, but I feel like a right dork when I do have to say it and it comes out all hickeldy pickledy.
