Cities section[edit]

I removed several cities because they were not incorporated towns. There are a number of other unincorporated towns/places in Bexar County that would have to be included if we included those. — Mateo SA | talk 00:07, Aug 21, 2004

Heraldry[edit]

Fair use rationale for File:Bexar.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Bexar.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 01:33, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Pronunciation of "Bexar" in English[edit]

Any reference?--Whhalbert 22:13, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

I've added the first one that popped up. There are probably hundreds - let me know if I need to find something more authoritative than a chamber of commerce site. I swear 99.99% of the people here simply pronounce it "BEAR" and drop any pretense of its Spanish origin (which I sometimes hear as "BAY-HAR"). You can always spot the yankees when they call it "BECKS-AR". :) Kuru talk 00:26, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

= LPM: I have studied Spanish a lot and I think "Bay-har" is just about right. The X in Spanish usually works just like a J, i.e., with the sound we associate with H in English. Also "Bay-har" easily elides into "Bear". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.131.198.173 (talk) 02:36, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Actually, "Bexar" is pronounced "Be-har" in Spanish, not "Bay-har". The "e" in Spanish is pronounced the same as the "e" in English (short vowel). Just like one wouldn't pronounce "egg" in English, "ay-gg", one shouldn't pronounce any Spanish word with the letter "e" as "ay". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaimeisanchez (talkcontribs) 03:18, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Likely true; the name of the city that the county takes its name from is Béjar, so bay-har in spanish. Academic, as the name of the county has long ago corrupted into the pronunciation of "bear", as have many places in southern texas. Kuru talk 02:52, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

I've added the "bear" pronunciation and a reference. 132.162.76.254 (talk) 18:12, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Pronunciation of Bexar[edit]

Since an anon keeps reverting the addition of the pronunciation without explaining why I thought that I would bring this issue up here. Anyway should we include the pronunciation of Bexar in the article or not? Feinoha Talk 02:48, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Sure. Uncommon pronunciation of an oddly spelled word. I don't know what the counter point would be. There's been a long term problem with an IP that just randomly removes it; not clear on why. Kuru (talk) 19:05, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
