40 Of The Hardest Idaho Names And Places To Pronounce
We have a list of some of the hardest places in Idaho to pronounce in a nifty list. I am going to try my best to phonetically spell them out. If I get them wrong I apologize some of these are even hard for me and my Idahoan friends to correctly say.
These are just some of them but there are more I am missing I am sure. If I missed some let me know, if I wrote them out incorrectly also let me know so I can fix it. As much as I identify as an Idahoan I have only been here 5 years, I am still a young padawan learning.
(CORE-da-lane) Not only is this one hard to pronounce I never spell it right the first time.
(Q-nah) It would be easier if the K was just replaced with a Q
(A-see-qua) I have always tried to pronounce it (ah-sec-wee-uh) that is very wrong and I still pronounce it incorrect.
(weezer) like the band
(peek-a-boo) like the game you play with kids.
(ponderay) Yea I guess it's French I didn't get that right at all.
(cash-ah) I know a lot of people think it is more of a "z" or a Cass-e-uh but nope.
(puh-simmer-oi) I guess that one could be figured out.
(Ten-said) this one looks so easy but it's so not
(Boy-see) there is no "z" there
(hay-ger-man) Not hag, hay.
(WEE-ipe) I will never get this one right
(ath-ul) This one you just have to be careful to enunciate
(DOO-boyss) this is one where you do pronounce the s at the end
(d-WORE-shack) This one is hard just because the d and the w are both pronounced.
(WORE-lee) not wirley
(MOSS-koe) not like the place in Russia
