"/nukjulr=/ is a pretty common pronunciation.  In fact, in my
experience, it seems to be the more common pronunciation.  I don't even

which I need to tell a joke:

"Where's "Here"?"

San Diego.

"Hopefully not by the same people who say /k&nsA/."

river, but not the state.  :-)"

Ironically, the tribe is are the KANSA or KANSAW.

I was driving through Illinois and couldn't help but say a certain
city's name as if I were a proper Parisienne. Terre Haute. Man, no one
understood me.
