hearing people using big words such as Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis etc make me feel stupid and confused what should i do??? Emotion: emoEmotion: sad i don't understand !!
It doesn't mean cuckoo. It's a technique where a sound has been used. Although 'cuckoo' is an example of onomatopoeia, it can be any sound in general, such as 'boom' 'crack' and such.
Hope it helped Emotion: smile

No one uses those except to respond to requests for long, hard words. Pour yourself a drink. watch something good on TV, and forget about it.
Some people say Cold Slaw which bugs me and when people know darned well they aren't saying a word correctly because everybody's told them and they still say it wrong. Talk about stubborn.

In my opinion the hardest words to pronounce are;
  • Statistics
  • Pneumonia
  • Rural
Those are words that I often mispronounce. I hope I helped!
