    for a while so I was not surprised to learn that there are all sorts of strangely pronounced places in Texas. It kinda felt like home.

    I can think of a another one right off the top of my head:

    Manchaca (outside Austin) is "Manchak", don't pronounce the final "a". Who thought that up?

    Good that you mentioned Worcester. There's two ways one hears it pronounced depending if it's by people from Worcester or from Boston: "Wistah" or "Wuhstah". I always gotta laugh.
