Strange things are a-happenin' with my language skills these days. French spelling and pronunciation have very little to do with one another (as our phonetics professor keeps drilling into our heads--"Stop looking at the word--just say it!" But in a nice way, not a drill-sergeant way.). So phonetics and understanding how to recreate sounds independent of spelling is important.
However, it's causing some problems with my spelling in English.
Don't worry that while chatting with my dad just now I wrote. "Okay. Love you. Buy."
Or that while writing the above pseudo-quotation from my phonetics professor I put TWO P's in Stop(p).
