Ten Germans try to say the word “Squirrel”
This made my night.
ahhh this is really cute
THEY’RE TRYING SO HARD
altonym please investigate this
lmaoooooo this is like the classic issue, I made my students learn squirrel when I was feeling mean (it’s actually quite useful for troubleshooting pronunciation issues but yh)
it’s b/c of a few things, like first of all it’s just a lot of consonants together, second of all it’s a word which looks like a two syllable word but which is pronounced closer to a one syllable word by most native english speakers (b/c we compress the second syllable, idk if there’s a word for that probably), then you add the “r” which a lot of germans have trouble with, also the fact that a lot of germans pronounce “qu” as “/kv/” rather than “/kw/” and like, a lot of the time u get
"sqvi-rhel" with that back-of-mouth R I can never remember the name of
tbh though “Eichhoernchen” (squirrel in german) has at least two sounds that took me a while to learn sooo don’t throw shibboleths from monolingual anglophone houses u kno
