Pronunciation[edit]

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.

The American Heritage Dictionary, has Mé·ri·da (mĕr'ĭ-də, mĕ'rē-dä) presumeably American English and proper Spanish, but

In the Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition

Mérida (mā'rēthä)

What's going on?

Teatro Romano[edit]

The reference here is not to roman theatres in general the THEE Teatro Romano. Hence, should pertaing to that specific edifice and be in italics. I'll put a link in there for now. Kristinwt (talk) 04:32, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

  • That picture right there on the page of the UNESCO World Heritage Site (Archaeological Ensemble of Mérida) is the Teatro Romano. That's the specific location I mean. Somehow needs to be linked up but there's not WP article on it. Kristinwt (talk) 05:01, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
