  • This is one of my absolute favorite words because it is so slithery fun to say. It is one of the rare English words with a cluster of four consonant phones /ˈsɪksθs/. As you speak that word-final consonant cluster, your tongue darts out and back in quickly as if it realized it shouldn't have stepped out in the first place. :)
