It’s time to get it correct. There are several cities in America that are hard to pronounce. We are here to help. Ready?
–Boise, Idaho. (BOY-see) There’s no “Z” in there. It’s supposed to be pronounced with an “S” sound.
–Lafayette, Louisiana. (LAH-fee-et) Most people say La-FAY-et. It’s actually La-FEE-et.
–Helena, Montana. (HELL-en-uh) Do you say Hell-AY-nuh? The emphasis should be on the first syllable, not the second.
–Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. (WILKS-Bairy) Don’t say the second half like your favorite “BAR.” It’s Wilks-BAIRY.
–Kissimmee, Florida. (Kah-SIM-ee) I always say KISS-i-mee. But it’s Kah-SIM-ee. Dang it.
–Norfolk, Virginia. (NOR-fik) “Folk” has nothing to do with that word. It’s NOR-fik . . . or NAW-fik.
–Spokane, Washington. (Spo-CAN) Do you say Spo-CANE? I have. It’s Spo-CAN.
–Louisville, Kentucky. (LOO-ih-vull) “LOUEY-ville” is what a lot of people say. Basically, swallow the whole word…LOO-ih-vull.
Good times. Tomorrow, we may tell you more things you do wrong….hahahaha. Kidding.
