So true!, And funny, also, how they pronounce the Y with a "SH" sound. Gotta love them for it!. Although, Uruguayans and Argentineans are aware that such pronunciation is incorrect. It is a *popular* manner of speech, which is improper. At schools, teachers encourage the kids NOT to say "sh" but "J" (English sound) when they speak a "Y". I say LET THEM!! They wouldn't be half as charming if they they ware "accent-free".

Sorry for the long note about stuff only I care about... couldn't help myself :op
