where did you get the pronunciation of Semiahmoo from?
I see the first draft of Semiahmoo people included " (pronounced /ˌsɛmiˈɑːmoʊ/ (deprecated template), US dict: sĕm′ē-ä′mō) " and I'm wondering where you got that; most of the links on the draft are now dead. That might be the pronunciation of their name in North Straits Salish, but the customary English pronunciation of the name, which is both their name and a geographic name, is with a "moo" (as in cow) sound, not /moʊ/. I'm not sure what /ɑː/ is for either, but the [a] can be either "stick out your tongue and say ah", or more like as in cat. I'd say more commonly the latter. I'm not from White Rock (where their community is located and there's a big high school by that name) and I don't know how the Semiahmoo Resort pronounces it on the US side of the line, but "moo" is normal on the Canadian side of the border; that much at least, harder to say about the 'a' sound, I'd tend to say it like "cat" though.Skookum1 (talk) 07:57, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
My bad, forgot to add link to Talk:Semiahmoo people where I'd launched the question for discussion. Not that you have a cite, but wondering which of the vanished ones maybe you got it from?Skookum1 (talk) 08:05, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
