How to Pronounce Bangor

I’m off to Bangor for another library meeting, and I thought I might do the rest of the country a favor and teach you all how to pronounce Bangor the right way. The way locals pronounce it.

Ready for this?

It’s a hard “g.”

I know. I just kinda blew your mind there, didn’t I? It’s okay. Breathe. You’ll get over it in a minute.

So, just to reiterate. It’s BANG-gore, not BANG-er. I’d do the IPA transcription, but I’m too lazy to figure out how to do that in WordPress.

So there you have it. Next time I go to Bangor for a meeting, you’ll be able to look at the word and say it in your head the *right* way, instead of that stupid way you’ve been saying it for the last forever. Aren’t I nice?
