Incidentally, I just noticed that my pronunciation changes slightly with context. The common noun "plaza" is as above, with the /æ/; likewise if it's the "category" part of a proper noun as in "Stantom Plaza". But when it's the "selector" part of a proper noun, as in "The Plaza (Hotel, Theatre, Casino)", then it's /'plaz@/ instead. -- Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>
