    Welcome to the forums.

    "angle" is pronounced "ang-l".

    "angel" is pronounced "ayn-jell".

    Which word is it that is giving you trouble?

    No - there are two different words. Look at the spellings.

    Angle = the space (usually measured in degrees) between two intersecting lines or surfaces at or close to the point where they meet.

    angle - Google Image Search

    Angel = a spiritual being believed to act as an attendant or messenger of God, conventionally represented as being of human form with wings.

    Hi, twin*MD*soul!

    No, you are confusing the meaning and pronunciation of 2 different words.

    'angle' is spelled a-n-g-l-e. 'The student used a protractor to measure the angle.' "angle" is pronounced "ang-l".

    'angel' is spelled a-n-g-e-l. 'The angel lives in heaven.' "angel" is pronounced "ayn-jell".

    Cheers,

    P.S. A friendly reminder: 'alot' is actually spelled as two words: a lot 'I forgot a lot of words.'
