A lot of people in New Mexico say 'ca-lo-RAH-do' and 'ne-VAH-da'. Is New Mexico outside the West? I have tried, but I can't make my mouth wrap around the locals's pronunciation of those states. Maybe it is because of Spanish, but pronouncing that 'a' the vay they do in those states makes me think I am trying to mimic an accent rather than prounce the word as I know it.
