DEE-troit ~ long E with emphasis on first syllable, only pronounced that way in Detroit, Flint, black folk and car guys (Motor City)

DE- troit ~ long E with emphasis on second syllable, is how the rest of the state pronounces it. Michigander - most people everywhere else in the state use this. We’re not crazy about it either but it’s a nice play on Canadian geese because we are on their migratory path!

Duh - troit~ emphasis on second syllable. Grosse Pointers, snobby but not usually effete lol
Right!… pretty much.
Good point about us motorheads. DEE-troit… as in DEE-troit Iron, DEE-troit Muscle, etc.
I would only differ in that:
A whole lotta folks in the deep south and other country folk - especially TRUCKERS - say DEE-troit. This is especially so when we talk Diesel engines.
Oh. Wait. There is another variant that is pretty all right in my book: Dee-TROY-ut… I’ll buy that, since it comes from (a) Curly (“I had a goyul in Dee-TROY-ut”… sumthin like that…), (b) Canadians, eh, and most prominently Don Cherry, (c) People from Buffalo, who can’t be all bad.
As for ganders, gooses, etc. of the Michy variety or otherwise, I got no use for em, since they nothing but s*** producers and I always gotta watch my step. I insist on being addressed as a “Michigan Person”, unless someone is addressing me as “Your Excellency”, which is my preferred pronoun…. um… rather… adjective/pronoun...?

Right, oi pronounced like oy. Was going to say motorheads but don’t know if out-of-state people know what that means. I use Michigan person and Michigander. Watching migration is fun but not when geese hang around. Good luck with ‘your excellency’ title lol

Um. I think you mean mnemonic?… or perhaps pneumatic… no... wait. That wouldn’t make sense.
But while we’re on the subject, please don’t nobody be callin my city Duh-TROIT like all the effete snobs around here! It’s DEE-troit… as in “She’s runnin like a DEE-troit Diesel.”
… and don’t be callin me a frickin “Michigander” like our Governor Mother-May-I do, OK?
Thanks.
What's the correct term for someone from Detroit or elsewhere in Michigan?
Some towns present more of a challenge - like Newport Newsians or Norfolkers.
Detroitians? Detroitonians? Michigooners?

Nevada, the Silver State, whose motto is “Battle Born,” is not pronounced “Nev-ah-da,” Mr. Bannon. That is the blue belly Yankee pronunciation.

You follow interviews with officials and/or residents of Nevada that give the proper pronunciation and yet you insist on the pretentious “ah” version that is usually perpetrated by easterners.

This is not an issue of pedantry but rather an issue of respect (and/or disrespect).

When you are aware of the correct attribution of a person or entity and still refuse to adopt it, that is disrespectful.

Nevada deserves better from you.
Who cares!
