it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
wait, what, why would you do that
They passed a law to decide which way to pronounce in 1881 because the one senator said ar-kan-saw and the other said ar-kansas
