This is something that has been driving me nuts for as long as we’ve lived here. What is with this state’s pronunciation? Everyone says it different! After a few long, heated debates with fellow Coloradans, I decided to look it up.
For all of you people out there who are as confused as I am, apparently the appropriate pronunciation is “Call-uh-rad-oh” That sounds so dorky. I’m a “Call-oh-rod-oh” girl myself, which apparently means I pronounce it like a Canadian
Apparently Nevada had the same problem and altered their license plates to set people straight. They say “NevÄƒda”.
