Could someone explain how the name of this town is pronounced?
http://www.cyclingforums.com/showthread.php?t=195487&page=2&pp=15 suggests he proper pronunciation would be meeh-ri-da as in the Spanish language the stress would be on the "e". The Spanish spelling of Merida has an accent over the e meaning the e is stressed.
but http://www.answers.com/topic/m-rida-yucat-n and the American Heritage Dictionary, Mé·ri·da (mĕr'ĭ-də, mĕ'rē-dä) pronunciation
On the Same answers.com page
Mérida (mā'rēthä) from the Columbia University Press
What's going on?
- Accent is indeed on the first sylable, with vowels pronounced as usual for Spanish. I think the "th" may refer to pronunciation the one in Spain, not this one. -- Infrogmation 03:19, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Monumento a la Patria
The image I just added to the article is far better than the one it included. Someone changed it back apparently, why would anyone do this. I don't see anything wrong with the image I just added. Cheers (126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:07, 10 May 2009 (UTC))
- Having read your comment here, I just reverted-- oops, now I'm wondering if I might have changed it to the one you didn't want? I can't tell. The image at writing has been at the top of the article for more than a month at least until the anon change. I have no particular opinion between the two photos of the monument; they both seem fine to me. Other opinions between File:Pdm-statue-merida.jpg and File:Monumento a la patria.JPG? -- Infrogmation (talk) 04:17, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
