- The contrast between flapped r and trilled rr is the same as in Spanish. English does not have either of the two sounds phonemically.
- The letter ç is sometimes written ch due to technical limitations because of its use in English sound and its analogy to the other digraphs xh, sh, and zh. Usually it is written simply c or more rarely q with context resolving any ambiguities.
