Candidates' Guide to Pronouncing Nevada in Time for GOP Caucuses

Many politicians repeatedly trip over how to pronounce “Nev-AD-ah.”

— -- When it comes to campaigning for votes, the least a presidential candidate can do is correctly pronounce the name of the states.

It’s not such an easy feat, however, when it comes to the state of Nevada.

People have butchered the Silver State’s pronunciation for years, calling it “Nev-AH-da” instead of correctly saying “Nev-AD-ah.”

“Some are going to Nevada. I'll be going to Nevada. We're making a big speech tomorrow in Atlanta. And then we're going right to Nevada,” said Trump, who has business interests in Las Vegas, goofing up the name three times.

While the mispronunciations may irk some Nevadans, it doesn’t seem to be hurting Trump, who has a double-digit lead over his fellow Republican candidates.

The Twitter handle @saynevada has taken to shaming and retweeting trolls who call out politicians and news anchors when they’ve committed the ultimate taboo of mispronouncing the state.
