Isn't it the case that the river, throughout its length, is referred to

as the ArKANsas?

In my experience, the river is generally called the ar-KAN-zuz river in the

state of Kansas, but the AR-kun-saw in Oklahoma and Arkansas. And the small

city in Kansas is ar-KAN-zuz CI-ty.

I don't know that I've ever heard a Coloradoan refer to the river; I believe

that's where it begins. But I've never heard an Oklahoman or Arkansawyer call

it ar-KAN-zuz.
