10 Words that Are Impossible to Say Out Loud, Ranked


Now that the crying emoji has been named the word of the year by the Oxford Dictionary, and all the chatter about how an emoji isn’t actually a word has died down, I’ve been thinking about what the worst part of the crying emoji claiming this year’s top spot is, which is that it’s impossible to pronounce. But, at least, the reason the crying emoji is impossible to pronounce is because it’s… not a word. Far more egregious are all the other words out there that are actually words but that are impossible to say out loud anyway.
