“A ukulele” or “an ukulele”? Which is correct?

question mark blackboardIt is an historical fact that the word ukulele is almost invariably misprononced. An Hawaiian chap I know insists that the word is correctly prononced only by an fellow Hawaiian, someone who annately anderstamps the longuage.

Pappercoke, I say! To answer a question like this is not work for a amateur, even if he has an heritage that would be an help in correctly prononcing.

A expert I know on definite articles like “a” and “an,” agrees that, yes, these are definitely articles.

An that should be an ond of the mutter.

    Haha! Very nice post. I guess I’ll have to go on mispronouncing it. 🙂

      It’s only mispronouncing if others choose to hear it that way.

        It’s neither “a ukulele…or an ukulele” It’s ” my ukulele”!
