jun·ta

 (ho͝on′tə, jŭn′-)
n.
1. A group of military officers ruling a country after seizing power.
2. A council or small legislative body in a government, especially in Central or South America.

[Spanish and Portuguese, conference, probably from Vulgar Latin *iūncta, from feminine past participle of Latin iungere, to join; see yeug- in Indo-European roots.]
Usage Note: For a long time this 18th-century borrowing from Spanish was pronounced (jŭn′tə) by English speakers on both sides of the Atlantic. By the middle of the 20th century, however, the pronunciation (ho͝on′tə), an approximation of the Spanish pronunciation, had gained currency in the US. This word is now usually pronounced (ho͝on′tə) in American English and (jŭn′tə) in British English.

pron: When the word junta was borrowed into English from Spanish in the early 17th century, its pronunciation was thoroughly Anglicized to (ˈdʒʌn tə) The 20th century has seen the emergence and, esp. in North America, the gradual predominance of the pronunciation (ˈhʊn tə) derived from Spanish (ˈhun tɑ) through reassociation with the word's Spanish origins. A hybrid form (ˈhʌn tə) is also heard.
