    How do you pronounce these words ?

    Seems like i'm the only person that pronounces pecan Pee-Can

    Everybody else seems to pronounce it Pee-Khan (as in Khan !!!!!!!)

    Also, how do you pronounce Appalachian ?

    Apple A shin (A sounds like Acre)
    or
    Apple a shin (a sounds like cat)

    How do you pronounce them ?

    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    My pop-pop, who was from Texas, always said a pee-can is something you keep under the bed. It is pronounced pa-khan.

    I say:

    Pee-Can
    Apple-Ay-Shun

    Also:
    Creek with a long "e" - not "crick"
    Roof rhymes with goof
    Balcony = Bal-Can-Ey
