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.
