For once in my life, my dyslexia may help me learn a foreign language!
Of all the Romance languages, Italian has the most rational pronunciation rules: each vowel is pronounced exactly the same way every time it occurs; all the syllables of a word are pronounced.
French, on the other hand, is dirty with weird inflections, elided syllables, dropped endings, silent letters, and accents on vowels frequently alter the meaning of a word.
Yesterday in class, I had little trouble pronouncing the French. I am still stymied by Italian.
