How come I've yet to run into anyone here that can pronounce the name of this county correctly? Is there lead in the water here that I wasn't told of?
Its "More-e" county, not "murry" county.

Apparently the people who live here have their own way of pronouncing places. They call Shelbyville "Shebvul", Santa Fe "Santa FEE", They prounounce LaFayette "LaFAYette" instead of LaFayETTE. I don't get it either, but I guess in order to "fit in" you have to conform to their way of talking...silly as it sounds. lol Personally, I think I'll stick to the correct way of pronouncing the words.

I think you're thinking of Maury Povich.:) It's not like you can look up Maury County in the dictionary for correct pronunciation. Wikipedia lists Maury (in Maury County) as sounding totally different.

I'm supposed to move because other people are too lazy/ignorant to pronounce a word? Your intellect is high caliber.

How about YOU learn how to talk/read english

Apparently the local dialect is causing some serious concern for newer citizens. Maybe you enlightened folks should organize a pronunciation drive to help the locals out?

I already pay taxes to fund the local schools. Obviously they are not well staffed or something.

This isn't about words people use genius. Every part of the country has their own words.

This is about not being able to pronounce those words correctly. There is a difference between differences in culture and people just being ignorant.

It is hilarious watching the reaction of you inbred southern fools when you are called out on your ignorance. "A pop is what you need in the mouth"....calling for violence when you are corrected? You might as just be saying, "We are proud of being ignorant! Don't ya'll be trying to teach us something or somebody gonna get hurt!"

We don't say "soda pop". We just say "pop". The term "pop" originated WAY back because of the popping sound when the bottle was opened. You people, on the other hand, call it "soda" even though they no longer use soda bicarbonate. Go figure.
