Not the common news we use to share, but we were really wowed by Liam Dutton. Before stating his accomplishment, let’s stick to that there is a 58-letter word, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. And Mr. Dutton can pronounce it. And since it’s a Welsh town, there is high possibility that most of its 3,107 citizens can pronounce it as well. And they must all be tongue twister champions.
Speaking to Wales Online, he said: “There’s always a chance that you can stumble, but that’s the nature doing the job. I’ve been doing the weather on TV and radio for 13 years now, so I’m at a point where I’m really comfortable on-air and don’t get nervous”. For your information, it is not the longest place name in the world.
The place that has made it to the top of the list with the longest place names is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, and for your convenience it’s 85-letters long.
Can you pronounce them? We didn’t even bother trying.
