    Sorry, but I'm not too sure just what you're asking. Are you wanting to know the definition of "pronounce" ? If so, it means either to say a word in a certain way (She doesn't pronounce German terribly well) or to speak a word as it should be spoken, say it correctly. (How do you pronounce S-Y-Z-Y-G-Y ?)

    There are two basic sentences. In colloquial (informal) language, you could say "I can't get my mouth round some long words".

    Colloquially means in common speech; slang is colloquial expression. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to pronounce this word in type!?! heh heh Mebbe Caw-lo-kwee-uh-lee!?!
