like ella. i pronounce it 'Ay-ja'
and some people say it 'Ay-yah'

it sounds retarded the second way, cuz i learned it the first way. and my spanish teacher (last year) was born in Puerto Rico (and left when she was 8) so she would know how to say it right.

i know 'tortilla' has the eniglish 'Y' way. but some things sound better with the english 'J'.



thanks♥
Update: glass ceiling, you got that wrong. only spain pronounce's it 'zh'.

and i think mexico is 'y'

puerto rico is probably both. my mom says 'y' and my spanish teacher last year said 'j'

it doesnt matter anyway cuz im dropping out of spanish next year.
