The Real Academia-the experts on the Spanish language who define grammar and vocabulary for the millions of Spanish speakers-have recently announced a few controversial changes to the Spanish language:the loss of accents on some words, like sólo-which will now only be solo. But more troubling for Spanish speakers around he world the change of the letter Y-before called "y greiga" and now called "YE". Ye??? Now ye know.

I think that is dumb!!!! It will be Y griega for my students and I for ever! I wonder if it is because English speakers learning Spanish do say "ye" my kids do... And accents too??? What is up with that????
