Are there any words that you think look wrong with the way they are spelled? Or sound weird when you say them a few times? I read the word 'uncle' and just thought it was the strangest word ever, spelling and pronunciation wise. Discuss.

that feel when thinking about a word and suddenly it falls apart, doesn't make any sense and you forget the meaning of it, forget how it's spelled and suddenly it sounds like a crazy jungle language word while you've been using it thousands of times over the years..

and then it's all back to normal like that momentary relapse to vocabural insanity never even happened.

Yeah, military ranks have that a lot. Colonel, sergeant, lieutenant. What's up with that?

Also, shrewd. The first time I saw that word I almost couldn't believe it existed.

Also, as a non-native speaker, the first time I saw the word "agree", when I was like 8 and I was looking up the lyrics to Let It Be, I thought it was a really funny word for some reason.

Proper nouns are just a danger zone. Especially places in the UK.

But a word I've always found strange is burglar.
