The letter “ñ” gets no respect.
Pronounced "enye," the fifteenth letter in the Spanish alphabet is often misused or completely left out of Spanish (or Spanglish) text messages, captions and social media status updates, be it due to human error or autocorrect. Either way, this is a huge problem.
When you replace an “ñ” with "n", you can completely change the meaning of certain Spanish words and names. Oftentimes, those little swaps can be the difference between expressing a sweet sentiment and making a total fool of yourself. But don't just take our word for it, see for yourself.
These nine words take on completely different meanings when you replace the “ñ” with the regular ole letter "n". Can you think of any others? Share them in the comment section below.
