Which words do you find the most difficult to pronounce?

Clearly there are some words that are more difficult to pronounce well when you read them out aloud.

Are there any strikingly difficult words that you have found, or that you still struggle with?

One that I find difficulty with is ἀπηλγηκότες (Eph.4:19), and another is the ἑλκύσαι and εἵλκυσεν of John chapter twenty-one (vv.6 & 11).

I guess that suggests that I have a problem with the λγ and λκ combinations. :lol: Something to work on at least.
