For my two cents I will add Salina, Kansas and Salinas, California, one of

pronounce Saleena, and the othe Sal-I-nas. Which of course led to the age-old

The correct pronunciation of the capital of Kansas is Tuhpeekuh (Topeka),

where I spent some of my formative years and visited the capitol. My

father went to college in Suhlainuh, to Kansas Wesleyan.
