Meteorologisch (meteorological) is the most difficult Dutch word to pronounce, according to Dutch language experts.

The Onze Taal language organisation used its Facebook page to draw up a list of the 10 most difficult Dutch words and encouraged people to vote. In total, 2,880 people had their say on the Onze Taal website.

Meteorologisch, with 35% of the vote, was a narrow winner over defibrilleren, which took 32%. In third place was the desert bavarois, with just 11%.

Top 10
1. meteorologisch (meteoroloigcal)
2. defibrilleren (defibrillate)
3. bavarois
4. uil (owl)
5. aluminium (aluminum)
6. munitie (ammunition)
7. cholesterol
8. identiteit (identity)
9. nieuws (news)
10. industrieel (industrial)

For many years, meteorologisch is an understanding for Observator. We have no trouble with this word. We can pronounce this word very well.
