Pages of History: No going back on pronouncing it ‘Del Nort’

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, April 1969.

Dear Editor: I am writing to ask you to please do something about the pronunciation of Del Norte. It is a Spanish name meaning “the North.”

 Colloquially, it is mispronounced. It is not “Del Nort,” and the radio announcers mispronounce it also. I am a newcomer from Albuq­uerque, New Mexico. I moved here some 16 months ago, and I am not Spanish, but an Anglo. However, I believe in proper pronunciation, especially of names and places. Please think of this.

A Loyal Customer
