Well, on this turkey day, I’ve learned that I have something in common with George W. Bush, President of the United States
We both mispronounce Nevada, at least according to the way the natives pronounce it.
I read on one of the news sites that in a visit Tuesday to Las Vegas, Bush repeatedly mispronounced the name of the state. Smugly, I continued to read on, until I discovered the horror.
Bush mispronounces the state’s name as “Nev-ahh-da”.
I had thought that WAS the way you pronounced the State’s name. I did a little research, and it seems that the official pronounciation among residents of the state is “Nev-aa-da”
Now, if I do visit the state, I’ll know better.
