IIRC, the Castilian/European pronunciation of Spanish (most prominently
the "lisping" of "c") sounds "faggish" to Latin American speakers of it.
But a similar thing holds for Oxford pronunciation to American audience
where lisping does not come into play.

Anyway, this may or may not be delightful or amusing or whatever, but it
certainly seems completely off-topic for a Lua group.
