SD's capital is pronounced PEER, not pee-AIR

VT's is mont-PEEL-ee-ur, not moan-pell-YAY

Sort of like that big city in MI is dee-TROYT, not du-TWAH [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

People are gonna say what they gonna say, I'd say let em go nuts but my inner nit will still note them as idiots.

I think Im the only one on the east coast I've met that pronounces oregon the way oregonians do.

Worcester Mass gets mutilated the most from what I've heard.

Isn't it "Wooster"? I thought there was a separate town in MA named Wooster but the first google comes back with is Worcester's city page. I think people pronounce it "Wor-chester". I was born in Springfield but moved away when I was a wee tot.

Yeah, I think some folks will try to insert it as 'Ill-i-noy-is'.

I grew up in and went to college in Charleston, SC. Some weird pronunciations (local) there:

-Hasell Street - (say "Hazel")
-Huger Street - (say "Hugh-gee")
-Legare Street - (say "Legree")
-Vanderhorst Street - (say "Vandrost")

I once had a boss named "Richard". He would always get pissed at us and say his name wasn't pronounced, "Dick".

He never got it.

My name is Michaud. It's pronounced Me-show. Even the Cajuns get this wrong when they see it.
