This week, I was honored to record an interview for Speak UP! radio, a division of Christian Devotions Ministry. The interviewer, a Yankee, mispronounced APPALACHIA. I gave him a trick to pronouncing it correctly. Hopefully, he will never forget.
Now, most of us from the mountains know how it's pronounced. Just in case, I'll give you the trick.
APPALACHIA is pronounced as if you were telling someone, "Say it right or I'll throw an APPLE AT CHA.
|Chun Li, street fighter|
Is this how you say APPALACHIA?
If not, how do you say it? And who told you that was the way to pronounce it?
I mentioned above that I did an interview. If you'd like to hear a bit about my rearing and my struggles with chronic illness, I put the link for the radio show below. You can listen anytime.

If you listen, I'd love to have your feedback. Tell me about your adventures and challenges growing up in APPALACHIA.
Or, tell me about the joys you remember.
I love hearing from you.
