comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
@WalterMitty: Saying that "México" should be "Méjico" is an over-simplification. But read about that here.

comment Exception to the Phonetic Rule
The OP does ask for exceptions to the phonetic rules--look at the title. And "Words that are spoken differently than the way they are spelled" is another way of saying exactly the same thing. And the words in your answer are spelled exactly as they are spelled.

But you didn't. You explained how words spelled with 'j' sound, how words spelled with 'g' spelled, and how words spelled with 'gu' sound. You just explained three phonetic rules and gave examples. Your examples in the last sentence are not examples of violating phonetic rules. Every one of those words follows the rules. hoguera, guía, Miguel, etc...

These explain the phonetic rules, not exceptions to them.

comment Preferred word for 'T-shirt'
As the vocabulary for things like clothing and food vary greatly by region, it would be helpful if you could tell us which region's vocabulary interests you (if you know).

comment Usage of pero vs sino
I wonder if you didn't understand my question. Sometimes, for stylistic reasons or emphasis, for example, someone would repeat the entire phrase. I'm asking if sino would still be appropriate then? Another English example might be, "I don't like cats, but I do like dogs." Is sino still appropriate, or would pero be used, since there is an independent clause?
