12. I can't criticize anyone for saying, "aks"

when I pronounce the "h" in "wh" words such as "which," "white," "when," and "what," but put the "h" before the "w" and say, "hwich," "hwite," "hwen," "hwat," and the like. English is a wonderful, changing language. I really enjoy speaking and reading it.
