Some languages around the world use the generic we instead of English's preferred one or you. I have noticed that some people, when asking questions on this site (EL&U although the same principle applies to ELL), use 'we' in this generic way.
More specifically, is it ever possible to use 'we' when talking about a group to which one does not belong?
My instinct is to use you or even one here to form How does one pronounce... etc.
I can only think that it is either a transatlantic difference or a feature that has come from other languages, since the only other uses of 'we' I could find are inappropriate.
Is my instinct right, or is this acceptable grammar?
