Looks good enough to eat, now Iustine! Thanks.--Ioshus Rocchio 16:31, 11 Iulii 2006 (UTC)

Glad you like it. But as for the Spanish, keep in mind that tortilla, while not attested in classical literature, is a perfectly valid Latin word: it's the diminutive of tortula (attested), which in turn is the diminutive of torta (also attested). Thus, I don't think it makes sense to say a lingua Hispanica, and if we are going to give the Spanish pronunciation anywhere, it should be in the subsections, since those deal specifically with the usage in Spanish. Of course if we are going to do that at all, then it makes sense to distinguish the Mexican and Castillian pronunciations as well!
I also kind of wonder if there might be words in other Romance languages that reconstruct to tortilla as well. If so, we should definitely mention those too! --Iustinus 21:50, 11 Iulii 2006 (UTC)
