    i guess there are days when i'm talking well, and other days when i just can't pronounce just about anything correctly.

    i guess "specifically" could be a possible candidate. I forget about what others however.

    don't think there are single words I can't pronounce, but there are words I have difficulty pronouncing quickly together in succession.

    edit: just noticed i can't pronounce clothes, it sounds like im saying close. lol

    That because you're forgetting to pronounce the TH sound...

    its weird. sometimes when i can't talk in simple words, i stutter to try and say it in plain english, but if I fail at that, I revert to talking in complicated phrases that not everyone would understand, unless they were concentrating.


    for example, I was trying to say: I didn't understand what you wanted...
    (but i didn't know how to phrase that... i wasn't really thinking in english...)

    but instead "I misinterpreted your request" came up.


    Imagine saying that to some 80+ year old, with bad hearing. haha.
     
  18. ^ lol why dont you try something like linguaphone, they are supposed to be very good with teaching you how to pronounce stuff.


    .... wonder if this will get deleted too... my motive remains the same... -devil
