Even Wisconsin natives can botch the name of a Wisconsin city, park, Native American tribe, lake, or county. Some monikers are real doozies--- four-syllable monsters like Ashwaubenon. The next time you have to introduce Madison mayor Dave Cieslewicz, we suggest you consult www.misspronouncer.com.

The site provides online audio pronunciations and includes “This Day in Wisconsin History”, fascinating facts, Wisconsin-made products, and a Wonders of Wisconsin section with newsworthy events.

For other useful sites, check out the Wisconsin Sites category on the MPL Homepage under Recommended Links.

thanks Jane for this great post! I had not discovered this resource on the MPL site yet, and I'm having fun exploring all things Wisconsin and how to pronounce them. Chequamegon will always stymie me, but I'm practicing! Thanks again!
