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

Sam Eig was a famous real estate developer in the DC area, and Sam Eig Highway in Gaithersburg MD is an extension of I-370 and a major route. It should be pronounced "Sam Eyeg" but the last name is currently spelled out instead.

Limon, CO is pronounced "Liemun" (with a long "i" like "die") rather than "Lihmun" as Waze currently pronounces it.

"Cirby" is being pronounced as "sir-be" (... Way, Sacramento, CA)

It should be pronounced the same as "Kirby", the little pink fluff ball.

I believe this would be the place for this link?

Edinger is pronounced as

Ed Ing GRRRRRR With GRR like someone growling or like ti- GER

I feel it should be

Ed In GER with GER sounding like "Ger"-on-I-mo, or "Ger"-man-y

This is not an abbreviation problem but I was advised to post here by an editor.

Ardleigh St in Philadelphia, PA is spelled correctly on the map but for some reason is pronounced ANDleigh street.

I-80 should be pronounced as "Interstate Eighty" but not "I 80"
Blvd should be pronounced as "Boulevard" but not "B L V D"

I-80 is correctly pronounce as "eye eighty" that is common vernacular and shortens prompt length.

Blvd should be pronounced boulevard, if it is not please provide a permalink to the segment where it is happening.
