This is a very interesting thread, could someone make a list of at
least the more famous meteorite pronunciations? Maybe on a web site?
I've always said AH-Len-day but heard it's Ah-YEN-day.
>One I always hear mispronounced is Willamette.
>It is said as "wil-LAM-it"
>Not "will-a-MET" as so many non-Oregonians say.
>By the way, that's ORE-a-gun, not or-E-gone or ORE-e-gun.
>Martin in ID (not Indiana)
