There were only a handful of words I wasn't 100% sure how to pronounce (maybe 4-6?), but I knew almost all of them. Like you, whisper, I think they're just not words used here in the US. Even though it's not my favorite subject, I'm good at reading and pronunciation. I almost gave out out of laziness, but pushed through.

Managed to make it about half way through, then I skipped near the bottom and continued there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> There were some words I did not know but I think I did a decent job at sounding them out.<br><br>
I also have no desire to ever read that list again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Haven't heard some of the words before but I said the whole thing out loud.

Managed the whole thing out loud. Two words I'd never heard of, but the pronunciation was obvious because of the rhyme. A couple more I'd only read and never heard, but again, managed them just fine. The sad thing is, I know a large amount of native English speakers would never manage it.

That's British English, not <i>real</i> English. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I recognized most of them but reading that gave me a headache.
