Newhall of Newhall St is being mispronounced as
"noo hal"
, and with a long pause between the syllables as if it is two separate words. Should be like
noo-hawl

Permalink

Oddly enough, "Newhall" is pronounced correctly in Newhall Dr here.

Thanks.

It's a little tough to hear, but it does say Gropp. Unfortunately the forum won't allow mp3 attachments.

Sounds good! Thanks PesachZ and KB_Steveo.

No. Long e's and emphasis on first syllable. And hard V like vē.

'lēvs-lē

Is there any word on including Ñ (énye) in Jane?

Waze is currently mispronouncing "Cañada" of the road here and the college name here like the country name.

The locals are stirring ;)

Thanks.
