Recently, in a lesson, I came across a question about double consonants in Spanish.
Apart from the well-known ll and rr, what other double consonants can be found in Spanish?
Doble ll (the same sound as a -j- in English) in words such as:
Lluvia, hallar, gallo, batalla, llevar, pollo, … and many more.
Doble rr (pronounced as a rolling strong -r-), we have words like:
Perro, zorro, arrasar, arroz, barro, churro, ... and many more.
Also, apart from these two cases we can find words with:
Double cc (pronounced as -k th-) in words like:
Dirección, perfección, acceso, sección, accidente, …
Double nn (pronounced as two -n-):
Perenne, innovar, innato, connotación, …
