Since Jet Punk usually ignores articles, how about (La) Paz, Bolivia?

JetPunk doesn't ignore articles; it's the quiz maker who sets up the quiz in such a way that you don't have to keep typing the articles.

Jetpunk should really ignore articles. Does the UK begin with a "T"? I also tried La Paz.
level 59

La Paz is never referred to as "Paz" by most of us. UK is mostly referred to as UK or United Kingdom. There's a difference.

That's simply false. It is very uncommon to hear "UK" without "the" preceding it. At least here in the UK itself, anyway

It does with sentences and booktitles etc. But not proper names..

In titles, in every day speech, people often drop the first "the" most people say "lord of the rings" while it actually is "the lord of the rings" But noone commonly drops the article for placenames.

Why is the last 'h' always removed from the answer? It's super annoying to end up writing 'hpalikirparamaribopristinapretoriaportmoresby' before looking up at the text field.

Probably written without the h sometimes, but it does happen a lot and probably shouldn't with Edinburgh and Riyadh. I agree it is a bit annoying.

Huh, about a third of these begin with Port.
level 73

who'd a thunk it? A port being an important enough settlement to be designated as capital city

If Benin is given on the C quiz for Cotonou, should it also be a given on this quiz with Porto Novo?
level 84
Jul 25, 2018
Cotonou is the seat of government and Porto-Novo the official capital.
