Una pregunta de pronunciacion


Que son algunos sonidos que se pronunciacion diferentemente entre paises. Por ejemplo... "ll" a veces es mismo que "y" (en ingles), pero a veces es mismo que "j" (tambien en ingles.)

Hoy una maestra me dijo que necesitaba decir "r" como "d," pero pienso otra persona me dijo que no debia nunca pronunciarlo como esto.

Asi que... cuales letras cambian de pais a pais?

    Well, there aren't so many:
    -Sometimes we pronunciate X like a J, mainly in Mexican names...
    Mexico → It pronunciates "Mejico", but it writes Mexico. The same with Texas → "Tejas"
    *Texas and Tejas are 2 different words. Be careful!
    Xavier, Alexandro, Ximena, Oaxaca, etc. They all are pronunciated like a "J"
    -Very rarely, we pronunciate J like the English J, like in English names like: Jeniffer, Jessica, etc.
    -In Argentina their accent changes the sound "LL" and "Y" (except when it sound like I) for like a "SH"
    For Example: ¡Ya se me perdieron las llaves otra vez! → ¡Sha se me perdieron las shaves otra vez! Obviously this is only speaking, not writing.
    -Spanish people pronunciate the "Z" like "TH"
    I don't know more exceptions...
    We never pronunciate the "R" like a "D"... Your teacher must be wrong... :/
    "LL" and "Y" have the same pronunciation, except when "Y" doesn't have a vowel next to it.
    Yate → It sounds like "LL". Hay → It doesn't have a vowel next to it, so it sounds like "I"
    How I said, yes, sometimes "J" have the same pronunciation of "Y" and "LL", often in English names or English words:
    Juliza sounds like Yuliza. Jennifer, Jessica, Jazz (music genre), etc. They all are pronunciated like Y, or LL, whatever.
    My English isn't too good. Excuse me ;((
    I hope it helps!! ;)
    Spanish is a beautiful language! Enjoy it!

    El español no cambia mucho las letras como se escriben a como se pronuncian. Pero segun el lugar en que estes, a veces en el mismo pais la "ll" se pronuncia "ll" y en otros lugares "y", la "r" se pronuncia suave cuando es una sola pero cuando es doble se pronuncia fuerte "rr" y la "h" no tiene sonido en ningun lado donde este colocada.
