Why do people say Nevada wrong?
It is really annoying like on t.v Nev AH DAH it sounds dumb. You say it like Nev ADD da
Its because for some reason people outside the state of Nevada insist it is pronounced as a spanish word, ignoring the fact that literally no other spanish named State is pronounced in the Spanish accent. Its Nehv-Add-uh.
How do you say it?
Idk sometimes I say it the wrong way though just because its fun : ) lol but some other people may just think that's how your actually supposed to say it
I say it more nev-ah-dah like you. But maybe that's because I'm Norwegian and we don't say the A's so much. I agree, for some reason it's really annoying to hear people say Nev-add-da.
It's habit, or laziness. Everyone Im around doesnt say their R's "pawk da caw in da fawmas yawd " -it's like an accent.
