Linguistic issues concerning the euro – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Several linguistic issues have arisen in relation to the spelling of the words euro and cent in the many languages of the member states of the European Union, as well as in relation to grammar and the formation of plurals.
All languages have their own sounds and ways of putting words together. Sometimes these rules might prevent a word from being produced in the language naturally. Speakers may mispronounce the word as they are used to pronouncing things in a certain way. This has affected the euro as it is used in many countries and in some places there is disagreement over how the word should be used.
