¿Hay personas en españa que tengan problemas para hablar y hablan todo o casi todo con la z?

Aquí en eztadoz unidoz hay un enfermedad congénita que ze le llama lizp (lisp)

La persona no pronuncia las eses sino que todo para esa persona es con la zeta.

¿Entiendes ahora?

Creo que hace muchos años la lengua Española era una lengua pura. Ahora, creo que la lengua ha tomado muchas variaciones, tonos y modismos. Creo que ya no es lo que era.

A la misma vez, es muy bonito escuchar las variaciones, sonidos y tonos de las personas de diferentes partes del globo.

Podemos imaginarnos como sonaba la lengua española hace muchos años y también la lengua inglesa. Quizás hace años la verdadera o propia lengua española y lengua inglesa se hablaba solo por la realeza y por esa razón tomó la fama que ahora se le dá.

Todas las lenguas, para mí son maravillosas!

It isn't a matter of sense of humor, although people laugh at others that have this speech problem.

A lot of Salvadorians speak like that. Now this is a trait of the country and not a speech impediment...

But this is not a speech problem, but a way of speaking. I have a relative who burned his tongue when he was a child. Now he pronounces /r/ as if he was French: he has a speech problem. But the French don't have a speech problem, since their way of pronouncing /r/ is their way of speaking. There's a great difference between one thing and another. Or I think so.

Right. What I was trying to convey is that if you pronounce mesa as meza, I think you've got a problem...

I've got a completely perfect and neutral pronunciation, without any regional accent at all. Everybody asks me where I'm from, because they don't catch my accent. These are the good things of being from several parts of the country.
