In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm featuring a Spanish word every day during April as part of the Blogging from A to Z challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.
Today's word is >>whoops<<. And here are some random thoughts:
1 - Those of you who are paying attention will realize that this isn't a Spanish word. And that's because there aren't any Spanish words that start with "W." None, nada, zilch. When I went to work on my "W" blog post, I said >>whoops<< after I looked in my Spanish-English dictionary.
2 - There is a "W" in the Spanish alphabet, but it's only used for loan words from other languages, like wok and windsurfing.
3 - The Spanish pronunciation of "W" is >>uve doble<<, or doubled "Vs." Makes sense as a "W" looks like two "Vs" mushed together.
What's your favorite word that starts with "W"?
