Reno Raised

Dexter, MO

#1 Aug 28, 2014
Okay I was raised in the Washoe county area all my life except maybe 1st & 2nd grade. I graduated from Wooster in 1992. I now live in Dexter Missouri with my family but am planning a move back soon. This planning has led to a few conversations with people, one that really got me going during last nights viewing of the 2014 version of Godzilla.
All my life I heard it called Nev-AD-da ( AD as in add ) yet everywhere I go people call it Nev-AH-da ( AH as in Opera or open up and say AHH.)

So all you still in Nevada, how do you say it? Does it make you mad when people say AH instead of Ad? Or am I wrong and just too touchy?

If you need to ask...just look up the bumper stickers and tee shirts made on the subject. They sell well.
