A to Z 2015 Challenge U is for Uña or Una, Feline Friday and more info about the Spanish alphabet.

The Spanish alphabet has two "N's"
First there is the regular "n" that we know
and then there is the "ñ" with the tilda.
That is because the n and the ñ have different sounds. The ñ sounds like "en-yay", for example baños is pronounced "bahn-yos". Rather like an n and a y put together. 
Una is the feminine pronoun or adjective of the number 1 and Uña is a claw!
And speaking of claws today is Feline Friday!
Brought to us by Steve of BFDude !!!
He wants to make sure we know he LOVES
cats even if they do have claws!!


Oh...nice kitty kitty!
 
 
Oh yes Kitty, I love you too!

And for you trivia gatherers there are 29
letters in the Spanish alphabet.
The three extra letters are:
Ch, Ll and ñ.
This is according to my 1968 Spanish dictionary. However according to some info on the internet the letters Ch and Ll were eliminated in 2010. Have I put you to sleep yet? Have a great day!

Those are some aggressive-looking kitties.

What do you do if the letters have been written out of the alphabet? How do you spell words that have those letters in them? Or do the words die along with the letters that make them up?

Amazing really. One of my favorite singers is Irish and her name is Enya! One of my favorite dueling sayings is, Enya face!
Ironically I've been trying to get mt Ch together all winter.

Goes to show you - I've been speaking Spanish a longer time, and now I too, will get the Ll on down the road!

This is great, Kathe!!

Nice kitty! Please be nice, Kitty! (That's quite a cat, for certain!)

As for the Spanish alphabet, i tried to study the language and made little progress, so i will take your word for the number of letters it now contains. The history of alphabets is a fascinating one.
