Here is a list of words that I don't care for much. I can't say that I HATE them, that is too strong. But dislike? Yes.Album: This is awkward for my mouth. I want to pronounce it "albulm."
Teetotaler: In my brain this sounds like the opposite of what it actually means. I envision a seesaw, which seems more appropriate for a drunk person.
Macabre: This sounds like a type of bird or fish. This word also just sounds very silly and doesn't seem fitting for describing something horrifying or grim.
Sherbet: Almost everyone I know pronounces it "sherbeRt" which sounds better than sherbet. My husband and I were trying to figure out the real pronunciation and thought maybe the t was silent like in sorbet, but no. It isn't. It isn't french, it's Arabic. Which you wouldn't associate with a frozen dessert. Or at least, I don't.
How about you, any words you don't like for any reason: spelling/pronunciation/perceived meaning?
