This is a hard word for Americans to say because it includes both of the extra A's that the Romanian alphabet has. I like to call them the 'smiley' and the 'hat.' My Romanian roommate likes to laugh at me when I do so. But it makes sense to me, so that's all that matters. But honestly the hat vowels are way hard for Americans to say because we don't have sounds like them. But I do like this word, so I try my darndest to say it. The best way I can explain the hat 'a' sound is to smile and then make an "ih" sound in your throat. Kind of. The smiley 'a' is more like 'uh.' And the regular 'a' is like 'ah.'
