I tried to pronounce these Minnesota words properly, but it just wasn't happening.

Please tell me that I'm not the only one guilty of butchering these words!

I'm just going to apologize to you native Minnesotans now, because this probably was like nails on a chalkboard to you.

I did a little research and found that the following Minnesota words are definitely the hardest for folks to pronounce...

  1. Winona
  2. Eli
  3. Oronoco

Does that sound about right to you? Would you have messed those words up too? I probably should've added Mauer County to this list too! A few others chimed in with more. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
