Pronunciation II: Home Sweet Wilkes-Barre Or Nogales
My apologies to central and western PA, but for years, I thought they were two different towns: Wilkes-Barre, pronounced "Wilks Bar," and "Wilkesbury," like the Traveling Wilburys.
And if someone could please remind me how "Nogales" is pronounced, I'd appreciate it.
My PA family members always said "LANK-uh-ster." Newark, NJ is "Noork"; Newark, DE is "New Ark."
Anyone here from the Vincennes, IN area? How do you pronounce "Vincennes"?
