[Cyclelicious] New comment on It's all them "eenie" foods: zucchini and linguini....

Yokota Fritz has left a new comment on your post "It's all them "eenie" foods: zucchini and linguini...":

My children were born in Illinois, so it grates on my ears when I hear "ill uh noise."

I travel around and get *so* confused at local place names. Is Montague pronounced mon-TAY-gew or mon-TAIG? Guadalupe: HWA-duh-LOOP-ay, GWA-duh-loop, or GWA-duh-loop-ay? Each of these place names are fairly common in the U.S., and each locality has its own pronunciation, but I'm very glad there's no national language board that would destroy local color.
