    I can't think of a single Spanish word with a "sh" sound. Can you?

    Yy does not sound the same in spanish as in english in spanish the Y makes a J sound. for example the word Yo In spanish meaning I actually is pronounced Jo. I hope this helps!

    @Turtledove "Yo" in Spanish is actually pronounced "yo." When the letter Y stands alone, in Spanish, it means "and." And in that, it makes an "ee" sound. I've studied Spanish for 6 years, high school and college. I hope this helps.

    @Turtledove I was watching Spanish tv advertisements, and I actually DID come across one where a woman pronounced the word "yo" like "jo." So I immediately thought about what you said. I researched it, and it turns out that Mexican spanish speakers do pronounce "yo" like "jo." And going back on what andreadbc said, in Argentina, they pronounce "yo" like "sho." On top of that, there are many others who pronounce "yo" like "yo." So I was just wanted to come back and apologize, for suggesting that you were incorrect. I was never taught about different ways people pronounce "yo." It's totally new to me. I'm very sorry.
