pronunciation - should "los angeles" rhyme with "cheese" or "mess"


the pronunciation of any word in any language does not necessarily inform the way it is pronounced as a loanword or by foreign speakers. i wager not a single korean would recognize hyundai as rendered by jeremy clarkson. place names are no exception. delhi, ontario is pronounced rather differently from delhi, india, which is not quite like the hindi to begin with. neither pronunciation you suggest is much like the spanish, either castilian or mexican.most all spanish names in the american southwest have been anglicized, the small spanish-speaking population having been vastly outnumbered by anglo settlers from the late 19th century onwards. san is invariably /sæn/ not /san/, los is similarly /lɑs/ or /lɔs/, almost never /los/. beyond that, the changes are idiosyncratic. san mateo and th...

(deb lindsey /for the washington post)neighborhood restaurants — places we frequent because everybody knows our name or the price is right (or both) — come in all shapes and sizes. the one that fits me best these days is ruta del vino, spanish for “wine trail,” in petworth. launched in november, it serves latin american food and drink in a rustic dining room that bucks a few annoying trends and embraces diversity. to wit, the owners don’t do small plates. dishes here are apportioned as appetizers and entrees, an idea more restaurants should return to. enough already with four people splitting three deviled eggs! the menu also straddles the divide between those who live to ...
