"City" is çuá? How'd that happen? Nik 11:19, 8 March 2006 (PST)

Never mind, I see it. Ciudad -> Çudad -> Cuá. Is that pronounced /tswa/? Nik 11:20, 8 March 2006 (PST)
I would think so, unless there's been a sound change to deal with that. Barry? BoArthur
It is usually pronounced as /tsu'a/, but it is permissible to pronounce it as /tswa/, as Castilian speakers are no doubt likely to do (although I think they'd pronounce it as /swa/. I didn't realize when I laid down the rule that /ts/ has the effect of eliminating the glide /j/ if it follows that the result would create çuá instead of çiuá (which was the original, and now incorrect form (or maybe it's an older form? :))).
