    "A "F"" or "an "F""

    "An F" sounds more correct but my spell check changed it to "a F."

    Re: "A "F"" or "an "F""

    It's "an F" because it's a spoken vowel.
    You spell [ef] and that's why it has to be "an".
    An hour.
    An MP3 player.
    An F.
    An H.
    An A.
    But: A U.


    Cheers!

    Re: "A "F"" or "an "F""

    Had you written a full word? A Free / A full / A fight? In which case your spellcheck is correct. If you had written just the letter "F", then "An [e]f" is correct.
