in a little town Meudon (Paris suburb); in Meudon (Paris suburb)


Explanation:
Можно, конечно, сказать и :
"in (a little town) Meudon near Paris",
но вообще-то окрестности Парижа называются banlieue и на английский это переводится Pais suburb(s), suburb(s) of Paris
Еще есть перевод : Paris commuter belt

Я пока не нашла примеров про Медон, но зато нашла примеры про другие города около Парижа, например:

... ... They live in Creteil (Paris suburb). ...
http://www.delanet.com/~loeb/marrache.html

А примеры с выражением "...near Paris" попадаются почему-то только с русских сайтов, и с ошибкой в слове Медон, и это мне очень подозрительно.

neutral  LQA Russian: Not a fair play, Vera. I see now, Medon and Meudon is the same (Haute-de-Seine - 92). But as the result of your tricks, the asker has entered the wrong term into the glossary. BTW, I found 'Medon' at some French sites as well

  -> Я понимаю вашу досаду. Мне тоже неприятно, что так получилось, но тем не менее я не принимаю Ваши обвинения, поскольку они не справедливы. А также тон Вашего замечания я не считаю уместным. Произошла накладка, а глоссарий можно исправить

Исправьте, пожалуйста


Explanation:
Там буква U должна стоять, как это получилось, не понимаю, я же стерла этот ответ.
Как нехорошо получилось...
Я же знала, что пишется с U, но "загляделась" на чужие ответы и машинально написала без.

Просто голова была другим занята - как Banlieue перевести получше, и т.д., вот и прошляпила.
Но все равно нет мне прощенья
Исправила, но поздно..

Я там несколько дней назад была, в Медоне. Там действительно есть русский храм,и вообще там очень много русских жителей, исторически так сложилось.
