Day 26: /fuːrɑːhɑː/

My name

Very hard to pronounce

Depending on what accent one may have

For some,

It rolls very easily over the tongue

For others,

Somewhere in between saying it, it induces vocal acrobatics

The scientists should have no excuse

Half their chemical names and classifications sound like alien utterances

The artists are not forgiven either

History shows that more complex designations have been proudly and accurately pronounced over time

All the fuss is for nought

Teeth on the lower lip to start, some tongue action in between, then ending in a hissing sound like a snake

Say it with me now:

Florence.
