I spell Seville ending with (e) and i am not sure if this correct.
I thought the extended word not attatch to the wording "e"
Again not sure but interested as i am limited...

That's the English spelling. A Spaniard would call it Sevilla.

I assume that Sevillanos is the plural form when referring to a combination of both genders. Is this a polite and courteous usage?

Howdy neighbor.

The worst pronounciation of Sevilla I heard was from one of my workers who said something like "Serrja". This area has several of the worst dialects in Spain...
