    My husband finds this word almost impossible to say, too.  (His first language is Arabic.)  He says something that sounds like "skrrrl."

    Quoting IhartU:

    The way for a British native to identify an America is to ask them to read out aloud the sentence:

    "A train from Loughborough to Edinburgh, via Derby, is faster than a train from Holborn to Leicester Square, via Southwark."

    My girlfriend that's from Germany is on her way over right now. I am going to have to test this theory.
