One thing that has always bugged me is so many newscasters seem to pronounce Fredricksburg as Ferd-ricks-burg. Has anyone else noticed that? It seems to be the hispanic news people who do it.

Moved to San Antonio about 6 months ago.. and the first person who corrected me was at the DMV (DPS) office after 2 months here..

I used to say BEXAR... .. with the "X"..
I had no idea it's supposed to be almost like "BEAR"..
Learning as I go...

Default Italy, TX

It is my understanding that Italy, TX is pronounced "EYE-tal-ee". I refuse to pronounce it that way.

I know this thread is old but it made me laugh!

When I first moved here I told a lady my family lived in San Marcos, CA and brought up the San Marcos here. She looked at me funny and said she didn't know where that was.
I told her "That town with a college, in between SA and Austin" she laughed and said "No is pronounced San Markis". I just don't get it!
