It means we have diagnosed the issue and the fix but are waiting for the backlog to clear for that type of issue before submitting new ones. Most pronunciation issues get sent to the vendor for fixing, so we send a batch, wait for results before sending more.

As far as I am aware Pke does indeed work. I would have no problem adding it onto the abbreviation list.

Could we get a TTS team ruling on "Pike"?

The general wiki for Waze Abbreviations lists it can be abbreviated as "Pke". I have tested it and Jane seems to work for that abbreviation.

The USA Abbreviation wiki list does not mention it.

Yes I know it saves a whole skinny "i" in the app, but I have run across some places where the street naming continuity is lacking so just seeing if it can be clarified for wiki continuity. :D Thanks

Should be pronounced "Briley" (rhymes with Riley) Parkway.

Is anyone looking at these and correcting them? Been almost a year since I posted this one and it's still incorrect.

Well, this is a weird one and I have no idea how it's happening. Jaguar Trail in Falls Church, Virginia (or at least the segment adjacent to Arlington Boulevard) is being pronounced "Jaguaxr" like there's a random X in there, but the name is displaying and stored correctly. Note that although it has a Falls Church address, it is in Fairfax County, not Falls Church City, so look at those GNIS references if you have to. I have no idea how that's happening. A less egregious error is Patrick Henry Drive (which is partially in Arlington and partially in Fairfax County with a Falls Church address) and it's pronouncing the first two letters like "Pay", which is obviously not how you pronounce Patrick.

Scioto should be pronounced sai-o-to, and Trabue should be pronounced trei-byu. These are place and road names from Central Ohio
