  6. Accordin tae the federal an provincial governments, Québec (wi the acute accent) is the ceety's offeecial name in baith French an Inglis. Even though French place names in Canadae typically retain their accents in Inglis an the ceety's name is not among 81 locales of pan-Canadian significance with official forms in both languages Archived 2009-12-10 at the Wayback Machine, as is the case wi the province o Quebec/Québec, Quebec is a legitimate an well-established exception in Inglis (as is Montreal). Similarly, Quebec CIty is common (e.g., per the Canadian Oxford Dictionary (ISBN 0-19-541816-6, p. 1265)), and is used particularly to distinguish the city from the province. According to Editing Canadian English (ISBN 1-55199-045-8, p. 77) the form Québec City makes no sense in either English or French; nonetheless, it is used by the municipal government Archived 2015-07-20 at the Wayback Machine and other sources (e.g., Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport).
