How do you pronounce AAA?
Is it a AAA or an AAA?

    My hands sometimes instinctively type 'an' before writing 'AAA' knowing that the next word, if you can even call it a word in this instance (it's certainly not an abbreviation), starts with a vowel. But I think pretty much everyone pronounces it as 'Triple A'. If you say A A A then lol.

    I say "a triple A" but I type "an AAA" because it makes sense within English grammar conventions when it looks that way. That's all.

    I don't think it does, because "when you type a one, it doesn't take an hour."

    Spelling doesn't matter.

    It's less about how it looks and more about how it sounds.

    But I have similar issues when I consider "FC". I would probably write it as "an FC" because I usually say "an eff-cee" since I implicitly know that I'm talking about a full combo, although other people might write "a FC" because when they read it, they think of it as "a full combo".

    As for this thread, triple A. If I see the same set of letters or numbers together I'm more likely to include words like double or triple instead of repeating that letter or number again. It makes everything more fluent.

    AAA, triple is translated to driedubbel/drie keer in dutch which is longer than fully pronouncing it, not that I have reason to say it often anyway lol
