HOW TO PRONOUNCE KOSCIUSZKO
We had some people over last night, and in indicating the nearby Kosciuszko Bridge (which I was pronouncing “kos-kee-oos-koh”), we decided to actually do the research to find out how it’s pronounced:
“Although many broadcast announcers pronounce the name of the bridge as “kahs-kee-OOSH-koh”, the actual Polish pronunciation approximates “kohsh-CHOOSH-koh” [Wikipedia, obvi]
From another source, (that was referring to its namesake, “Tadeusz Kościuszko, a Polish volunteer who was a General in the American Revolutionary War.”) we found this to be “koshy-chyoosh-koh.”
Either way, this is what you see on that bridge when crossing into Brooklyn (our building is off to the right below frame).
