15 Texas Places Non-Texans Mispronounce All the Time

Elizabeth Abrahamsen

Welcome to Texas where the English language makes even less sense than it does elsewhere. If you’re not from here, then you’re fixin’ to learn a few lessons about how we say things. You may think you know how to pronounce that city or street name, but chances are you don’t. At some point Google is going to need to come out with a Texan version of GPS so that we can stop hearing the robot voice say “KY-ken-doll” when it means Kuykendahl. Yeah, it’s as Dutch as the day is long, but that’s no excuse to butcher it like that. If you want to learn Texan pronunciation, stick around and see how many of these places you can properly pronounce.
