1. The improper way to pronounce Louisville (LOOuhville).

2. This is how an outsider would pronounce Louisville. Some outsiders who've been to Louisville will try to pronounce the city's name like a local out of respect for the local pronunciation, and even go as far as to correct people when they pronounce it "LOO-ee-vill." I usually point out to these people that King Louis XVI's name is most often pronounced "LOO-ee" and not "LOO-uh." That's not to say that the local pronunciation is wrong, but that "LOO-ee-vill" is certainly valid. Besides, in English we almost always alter the pronunciation of places to fit our particular language and/or pronunciation. For example, is "Germany" the locals' word for Germany? In Iraq do the locals call their country "eye-RACK" or "eye-ROCK?" Let me help you out--they don't.
