Why do the British call it Ibetha? Or is that something else?


Spanish island = British attempt at Spanish pronunciation.

The Spanish seem happy enough.

has anyone here been to Ibiza? I kinda want to go since hearing the Richie Hawtin/Sven Vath CD based on their experiences spinning at a club there(Cocoon I think).

In the Castillian dialect of Spanish, the β€˜s’ (alveolar fricative) sound is pronounced as a β€˜th’ (interdental fricative). Hence, Ibitha.

Thanks for explaining! I had never understood it.
