Taking a Poll

OK this is for everyone EXCEPT those that live locally to where I'm at now. Oh, and those that USED to live here......I want to find out what other folks think, so watch and learn. And You know who you are......

Here goes. I'm gonna spell the name of a town and you tell me how you think it's pronounced. I'll bold the emphasis, and try and spell the choices phonetically.


How would you pronounce that?




I'm just curious what everyone else thinks, cause I keep being told I'm such an oddity for the way I pronounce it.

I'll post the so called "correct" answer in comments this evening.....

Help a girl out, please!!!

Being from here, I am exempt from answering.

But, let me know if your territory ever reaches up to Shawano. I'll tell you how to pronounce that one.

Grew up on the left coast with a father who was born in KY and grew up in NY/OH. We pronounce it "jen-OH-wa". As in Genoa salami. YUM.

Great. Now I'm hungry.
