The Slice

Have you noticed pronunciation trend?

Maybe it's my imagination. But it seems like people saying “Spokane” on national broadcasts are getting it right more often than in the past.

Coverage of the recent women's boxing competition and the Washington GOP caucuses nudged me toward this conclusion.

So I guess writing this all but guarantees that the next national radio voice I hear will say “Spo-cain.”
