Why should it pause? How else are English speakers going to learn how Spanish sounds out loud if typical speech isn't used? Asking for pauses and avoiding certain phrases are surefire ways NOT to learn a new language.
True. "Lado" comes from Latin "latus", also meaning 'side', from which also comes the word "Latinus", 'little side', the name for a region on the side of Italy southeast of Rome, from which the Latins came.
