How should Nyes be pronounced?
When was the UR for the S Bailey Rd from? We recently had a briefs period where those abbreviations weren't working, but it has been fixed now. Can you please also give us a permalink to the UR so we can check it.

This should be fixed now, clear your TTS using cc@tts to confirm.
A period was added to the end to distinguish it as an abbreviation as opposed to just a name.

Penna will say Penna
Penna. will say Pennsylvania

Noted today:
San Dimas

San D-eye-mes (I was so caught by the "eye" that I didn't make not of the "mas" pronounciation but I think it was "mes" which is close enough)

Should be San Dee-mus

I have had first hand experience with Waze omitting the first word of a road name.

When navigating with a left turn from eastbound Central Expy to northbound De La Cruz Blvd here, the app omits the "De" and says "La Cruz Boulevard". I have not tested from any other direction of travel or from any other connecting segments.

Waze v 3.9.5.0
TSS: Jane
Android 5.1.1
