Different Spanish Dialects?
What spanish countries pronounce yo (I) like jo? I know colombia does but are there any other places that use this dialect?
gracias a todos :)

I first think of Argentina.
Puerto Rico: "yo" is pronounced like the word "yonder"
It is not a dialect, it's more like an accent, they pronounce words different.
A dialect deals with vocabulary.
Even within a country you will find regionalisms, colloquialisms, dialects, etc.
But remember, this post is about pronunciations, accents
Nice question! Thanks

The Y sound in ALL Spanish has more of a linguo-palatal fricative sound than in English.
Yo is ALWAYS going to sound closer to the English JOE to English ears, than like Yo!

I know a lady who comes from Buenos Aires. She says "yo" like Joe, but that doesn't necessarily mean that all Argentinians do.

I guess... puerto rican, mexican, spanish, peruvian, chilean... accents. But there's a much greater difference between the south american and european spanish. So, I would say, in general, only two dialects.
