Pronunciation problem[edit]

I'm afraid the pronunciation given for Newfoundland is wrong, based on Howjsay.com. The stress should be on the first syllable, and the /aʊ/ is out of place (in the recording, it sounds like /ʊ/). What do you think? Should it be corrected? Adam78 (talk) 10:36, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

I see that the /aʊ/ has already been changed into /ʊ/, but as for the stress, I think you're absolutely right and, moreover, the stress in Labrador should be on the first syllable as well. Collideascope (talk) 15:48, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

POV in History[edit]

There is a lot of insinuation in the history section that the UK maneuvered Newfoundland into an unwanted confederation with Canada. This seems to depart from Neutral POV. We see this also in Hawaii/US, which has considerably greater justification. Dfoofnik (talk) 19:59, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

four Lewis Islands in NL, and Lewis Islands and Lewis Island Tickle[edit]

I just converted what had been an Antarctic island page into a dab, and placed a series of redlinks. Lewis Islands and Lewis Island Tickle are unique names, but for now all four "Lewis Island" entries on CGNDB I've put as Lewis Island (Newfoundland and Labrador). That could be a dab page, or used for the most notable one. I'm not familiar enough with the geography of N&L to know how to dab the others; one is on the coast northwest of Grand Falls-Windsor, whatever that area is called. Some, including the Lewis Islands, appear insignificant, unless maybe they have a lighthouse or some history attached.Skookum1 (talk) 07:25, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
