You don't even want to know how my English teacher pronounced Arkansas
Quote from: Melle on April 24, 2013, 12:58:16 PMYou don't even want to know how my English teacher pronounced Arkansas Oh, Melle. Enquiring minds want to know. (Gets out a soda and puts popcorn in the microwave).
I never found it weird because I grew up with them but in NJ we have towns called Brick & Wall. My friend from Texas finds it amusing we name towns after building materials.
It kind of sounded like Dorothy had encountered a very stereotypical pirate in Oz. As in:"Wherrrre ya from, matey?""Kansas!""ARRRRRR, Kansas!"
We had a French lady working with us for a while. She insisted that Illinois (Ill-in-oy) should be pronounced 'Eel-known-wah'. In French that was fine but Illinois isn't French.
