What is the hardest word you can spell
Terms in this set (22)
Hello again just like longest words I have also been curious about hardest words you can spell. Again please comment. I have two which I can not choose. Both of these are also on my must know list
mlechchha and houyhnhnm
Piobaireachd, maybe, although to those who have read Words of Wisdom it's well known.
Yeah, I love piobaireachd too! :) My favorite word is aufait- meaning icecream but the hardest words would probably be arrondissement, blouwildebeesoog, Masham, pronounced \ˈmasəm\ & tabbouleh :D
Hmm... I am not sure what word! I have never thought of that! My words are probably easier to spell than most of yours. I will say maybe 'ctenii' , 'Quvenzhane', and 'zwetschenwasser'.
Well, this word is not very hard, it is just very long:
Also the very short but oddly pronounced jen and cwm.
Crwth, which is a Celtic instrument
I deleted Methionyl whatever because it ruined the quizlet
Here is my opinion on all of your words
mlechchha: I used this word
houyhnhnm: I used this word
piobaireachd: Hard, but can also be spelled pibroch
au fait: This was on the school list last year
arrondissement: This was asked in 2012
blouwildebeesoog: Looks like a tv word for Afrikaans
masham: Why is there an h???
tabbouleh: But it's Farsi (Persian)
ctenii: You only said that because of the expansion as in you can turn Nietzschean into Nietzschiaceae
Quvenzhane: Not in the dictionary
Zwetschenwasser: Another tv word for German
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis: This is not a hard word it is a long word
jen: It is weird, but maybe not as weird if you know Chinese very well
cwm: Well I better tell my English teacher that there is a word that has no vowel
crwth: Again it has alternate spellings only in unabridged
taoiseach: It was asked in 2016 and it is not as hard if you know a lot about Irish Gaelic
Difficulty of a word is subjective, but I'd say maybe schizaffin? I'm only saying this because you'd never guess its actual spelling based off of the pronunciation; I'd said "-phine" when I first heard it.
That is true, but it comes from two roots which is schiza as in schizophrenia and affin as in affinity
I would say rijksdaalder, because when you see the word, it looks really foreign, but if you know lots about Dutch/Afrikaans, it's relatively maneuverable
My best comment for this set is that none of us have found the hardest word possible because there are so many and yes my 2 words chose are definitely not my hardest words anymore

I'm actually compiling a list of "Impossibly Hard Words" and some of the harder words that I can spell in that list are zhayyq, crwth, dghaisa (a classic!), and the only word that I know of with three of the same letters in a row, (riot) grrrl, although a word with such a controversial definition is very unlikely to be asked in any bee, it remains intriguing.
Hi again and I thought that only I new that word! Also has anyone ever heard of youghiogheny? I have asked everyone and no one knows that pronunciation. Also I am doing the same thing. Btw youghiogheny is pronounced \ˌyä-kə-ˈgā-nē, ˌyȯ-hə-, -ˈge-nē\
Actually dghaisa was my hardest word because I found it by using google translates languages. When I used Maltese in the advanced search dghaisa came up and I thought that I found the jackpot not knowing that is was in wow and mentioned in the 2017 interview with Ananya.
Dghaisa and taoiseach are my favorites
Ijsselmeer is my favorite
My favorite ones are probably dghaisa, crwth, or Houyhnhnm (all of these I think are probably already said) or cywydd
