    an small or a small

    hi


    which one is correct


    a small world

    or

    an small world

    what i understand is that 's' in small has a sound of vowel 'I'. which is causing the confusion.

    thanks

    Re: an small or a small

    Whoever told you that is quite incorrect.

    The letter "s" is pronounced "ess", but not when used as a consonant at the start of a word, so A small world.

    When you spell "small" you start with an "s"
