Mispronunciation of "Koch" - a former NYC mayor - by Jane (US)
Permalink

Says: Coke (or sometimes people hear Koh) --> Should be pronounced: Kach (like watch)

Jane pronounces the city of Ione, California like "I ohn E(E as if saying the letter e)".

It should be pounced like "eyeon" or "Ion"

GizmoGuy411, I still don't see the entry for "Pkwy" (only P capitalized), but for "PKWY" (all caps).

We also have some usage of "Pkwy" in my area and TTS does say "parkway" as expected. The doc has an entry for PKWY (in all caps). Do we need to add a separate row?

I have confirmed (as others) that Intl is pronounced as "Intel". So, despite what the road signs say, should we expand Intl as International (for airports)?

"Commons" should be spelled out.


Got it. Thanks

Has this abbreviation been deprecated since the update to Jane (and the original abbreviation wiki page) or is it being worked on for an update?

Cmn and Cmns are both not supported by Jane. However they are both on a list we are actively checking to determine if we should add support for them. We should have a decision shortly, once we finish testing and researching the list.

Any resolution on this one? ("Cmns" is pronounced "C M N S")
