English[edit]

Map of US highlighting Nevada

Etymology[edit]

From Spanish nevada, "snow-covered."

Pronunciation[edit]

Typically pronounced /nɪˈvæ.də/ by residents, non-residents might use either /nɪˈvæ.də/ (common in the western US) or /nɪˈvɑː.də/ (common in the eastern US and California). Nevada residents may regard outsiders using the latter pronunciation as uninformed about the state. Like all other state names of Spanish derivation, the anglicized pronunciation differs from the original Spanish pronunciation, which is [neˈβaða].

  • IPA(key): /nəˈveɪdə/ (certain US municipalities)

  1. A state of the United States of America Capital: Carson City.
