Response to raccoon (Original post)

Wed May 9, 2012, 10:13 AM

10. My parents were MO natives... Depends on which side of the state...

As I recall those on the western side of the state (KC and elsewhere) say "Missour-ee" and those on the eastern, especially St. Louis and elsewhere say "Missour-uh"...

So, I grew up with this. Even though "Missour-uh" always grated on my own ear, I realized early on that it isn't just lazy it is a regionalism. Don't be so intolerant.
