O-kay! So I lost the bet on this one with my husband. He said Spokane was pronounced “Spo-kăn,” and I said “Spo-kāne.” It just goes to show you, no matter how many years you spend looking up words to pronounce and spell them right, you always find more words that you think you know – but you don’t! J Have a nice day!
