Putting aside for the moment the fact that almost no one pronounces the name of this city the way it should be said in Spanish, everyone from everywhere knows to say "loss ANjuhless". Why doesn't Miss Samantha know how to say LA?
Samantha says "NEW or-LEENZ" also, which is a sure sign that she's a Yankee.
One day, we might get a field for phonetic pronunciation, but it will most likely be for streets, not city. A couple of the Waze Champs have been doing testing for TTS abbreviations...if they ever get to where they can submit changes, maybe they could submit some city names that are mispronounced and get the pronunciation changed.
