"oh" or "ah"
« on: November 19, 2017, 04:08:08 pm »
Okay. I'm almost afraid to ask this question, but I just gotta...

How do you folks pronounce the O in Osage?

Do you say "Oh"sage, or "Ah"sage?

I've always said "Oh"sage, and it sounds so right to me, even if I'm saying it wrong I don't think I'll ever be able to stop. No one even knows what Osage is up here, but the other day I heard someone say "Ah"sage and it got me thinking.  ???

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Here in Michigan, it's always Oh. On the other hand I know some Canadians that use Ah - Tomatos, Tomattos   (=). Bob
