First off, let's start by agreeing that you can say these words any way that you want. Also, we're not going to argue about how to say 'Colorado.'

You can say 'Colo-raw-dough' or you can say, 'Colo-rad-oh;' it doesn't really matter to me anymore. I used to get all 'worked up' about our state's pronunciation, though. 'It's RAW-do!' I'd proclaim. But I'm over it now.

But, there are few other nouns (mostly cities/towns) that we pronounce wrong in Northern Colorado, in case you were wondering.
