When Two Letters Go Walking and They Both Do the Talking

Trying to think of words with double letters in which the letters make different sounds. It's pretty easy for vowels -- reentry, skiing, cooperate -- but I've only been able to think of one with double consonents -- accent. If one letter is part of a dipthong, as in threshhold, it doesn't count. Can you think of others?
