You say Angelino, I say Angeleno. It's a personal matter, really, a matter of style, or politics, a sense of history, a sensitivity to words -- whether you think the City of Los Angeles has made a correction or an error in its sparkling new blue city signs for Angeleno Heights (italics are Chicken Corner's) that have been posted around the neighborhood recently. The several new signs replace one or two signs that were spelled with an "i." Chicken Corner applauds the correction, having always disliked seeing the "i" in "Angelino." Though I know that at least half the residents of that part of the neighborhood prefer the Italianate spelling to the Spanish-style one. Call me a classicist, or misguided. I think we have Councilman Ed Reyes to thank for the proofreading.
For a broader view of the matter, see the Echo Park Historical Society's discussion of "e" vs. "i" and all those letters entail.
