Riddle of the Day (6)

Google can’t help you this time:

Give me a word in English in which the substring “sh” is not pronounced as in “shape”.

Freemind was the first to suggest some words. The one I encountered was ‘mishap.’ I didn’t realize Wikipedia had a page on the subject ;)

    Wikipedia instantly gives ‘hogshead’…

    There also ‘deshabille’ (ye.. there’s such an word in english). ‘dishearten’ ‘disharmonious’… and more…

    Also, “Portishead”, the name of the band; “grasshopper”, “mishap”, “asshole”, “glasshouse”…
