i am NOT english, there is not a single drop of french/german/norse/danish --sorry-- 'pure english' blood in me, i am Scottish, and there is a world of difference. unfortunately i live about 200miles into england, and it sucks. if you must refer to us as a pedantic mass, please call us 'British'

I think many people use the term "FAQ" to refer to that section where the Frequently Asked Questions reside. Technically speaking, though, TheKangaroo is right, but no one uses the term like that.

About using "a" or "an" the reason it's "an FAQ" unlike "a frog" is because we say "frog" not "F-R-O-G"; the f is pronounced like "eff" which would be a vowel sound.

EDIT: That turned out a little longer than I would have thought... :oops:

no, i see his point tho - if you say 'faq' as a word, its 'a faq', but if your odd and say it as its letters 'F.A.Q' then its 'an FAQ', same as you can get an F on a test

Did you say English? Do you mean those guys to whom the All-Blacks from New Zealand just gave a... well, let's say: hiding? :wink:

Huh, it wasn't a hiding. We lost, sure, but that's no disgrace considering how good you are. At least we made double figures.

I'm not New Zealander and I was just kidding (those "Froggies" also love to tease (and especially "Rosbiffs"), you know). :lol:
I'm perfectly aware that the All-Blacks presently are the strongest national team of all and for sure there's no disgrace (I've been watching the match)!! In the same time we've beaten the Tonga 8) but it's not at all the same level and to tell you the whole truth I'm more than a bit afraid concerning our next test match (France-South Africa)... :? :(
