"Prom" is short for "promenade," and if you're willing to "prom" -- that is, *stand* at the front or in the upper gallery of the Royal Albert Hall during the concert -- you can get in for about eight bucks. Those "prommer" tickets go on sale 90 minutes before every concert.
As a linguist, I am curious to understand why
Fred Child would think that the J in Azerbaijan would have a French "j" of all things. That's as odd as those who think Beijing has a French "j".
Actually, both have an English "j" as one would
It is true that the Slavic languages adopted the German "j" (stronger than English "y"); but that
did not seem to happen in Asia.
If you want a French "j" go to Haiti or the language of a former French colony in NW Africa (other than Nigeria of course), . . . say the Congo.
Is it that hard to get it right????
