What's the most annoying thing about the Spanish language for you? (LANGUAGE, not culture or history!)

I've been reading up on what is considered proper pronunciation for Spanish, and have realized that one of my biggest pet peeves is the yeismo. Everytime I hear someone pronouncing "Ll" like the English "J" it's like someone is scratching their nails on a chalkboard. It's that painful to my ears.

While growing up, when hearing people use the Yeismo I would think that they were trying to sound "more important" than other humble Latinos, because pronouncing the "Ll" like a "J" is how rich people speak. Maybe it's because I'm a poor humble "pocha" that I do not like it, but I do consider myself to read/write/speak Spanish fluently.

Unfortunately for me, the Spanish Royal Academy favors the use of the yeismo. I can't do much about that After all, they do dictate Spanish grammar and the whole language.
So this is something I'm just going to have to quit complaining about.

Even though it sounds like nails on a chalkboard.
(Yeismo and other Spanish particularities)

current mood: disappointed
