A List of Texas Towns That Are Commonly Mispronounced
Here is a fun list of towns that you might pronounce wrong if you are new to Texas. Heck! Even some Texans still pronounce these towns wrong, a few of them are in our backyard. We have compiled a list of Texas town and the 'correct' pronunciation. When I put 'correct' in parentheses, I don't agree with some of them.
Mexia, Texas is the one that gets on my nerves the most. It makes absolutely no sense! First of all, forget that the X exists, because you don't hear it in the pronunciation. It is a Spanish word, however, its pronunciation is not proper Spanish either. I also don't agree with a couple on the list like Menchaca, Texas. The 'correct' pronunciation is MAN-SHACK. I still will contend that is the incorrect pronunciation and will still continue to pronounce it the way it is spelled.
In our backyard is it GA-NAY-DO or is it GA-NAH-DO? We also have one of the most common mispronounced cities located right in our backyard, Refugio, don't get me started on this one. Check out the gallery below.
