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
*evil american laughter*
Actually it’s more evil French laughter. Both come from the same basic root referring to the Kansa people. Kansas comes from the Kansas River and uses the English pronunciation hence we pronounce it the way we do. However Arkansas was named after the Algonquian term for a sect of Quapaw in the region known as Akansa. The French then changed the spelling and added the S. In French, you rarely pronounce the S at the end of words. (expres, trois, vous, bas, etc).
Also, due to the confusion caused by it’s name, in the 1880s Arkansas lawmakers ruled that the pronunciation was officially Ar-kan-saw.
And now you know.
Oh my god I never even realized that they have the same letters Ar-kansas. WHERE HAVE I BEEN

Me: “Google Chrome?”
Client: “No, just regular Google.”
Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”
Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”
Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?
Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”
