How is this pronounced? "Angeleno" or "Angelenyo"?
Julian   Saturday, July 17, 2004, 16:35 GMT
It's spelled with an "n" not an "ñ", so it's pronounced:

English speakers - [@n dZe 'li: nOu]
Spanish speakers - [a:n he 'le no:] (this is a close representation of Spanish short vowel sounds)

Once in a while you'll see it spelled "Angelino", as in "Angelino Heights", an historical neighborhood of Victorian homes near downtown LA, so there's some confusion as to the correct spelling of our adjectival name.

Ooh..."AN historical"...that's quaint. Does anyone say that anymore?
Tom   Sunday, July 18, 2004, 11:18 GMT
Actually, I think the correct pronunciation is [@n dZ.. 'li: nOu], isn't it?

Hmmm...I believe you're right, Tom. has it with a schwa sound as well. My bad (ha! - is this expression still used?).

Random Chappie,
I always see "an historical" written in newspapers and magazines; never "a historical". When casually speaking, I probably would say "a historical" to avoid sounding affected, but when writing, I follow tradition.
