Lady G: The ENGLISH pronounciation for "llama" is correctly "LAH-mah."
Other languages is other languages. If we pronounced everything the way
it was pronounced in the language what gave us each word, we wouldn't
understand much, n'est-ce pas? ;)
Kendrick: Again, depends. I tend to pronounce the "ll" sound as a
softer "jzh" than the "y" sound. But then and again, there are lots of
accents within the Spanish language, so YMMV.
an exiled Caidan and a B.A. in Spanish, SO THERE!!! ;)
