Which whould I use in the following:
A Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).
A LVN or an LVN? Which is correct and why?
Pronunciation is the key.
a CIA agent ("C" is pronounced [si:]. CIA is consonant-intial)
an NDP leader ("N" is pronounced [en]. NDP is vowel-initial)
Note, "e" as in bed.
All the best.
