The one in Maine is actually pronounced like “chalice,” as far as I recall from the most recent time I was there.
Nah.  "Callous" is how they say it.

Entirely possible they were messing with us!

Perhaps in Maine, but not in Vermont.  Ours is pronounced close to "callous" but more with an "i" at the end instead of an "ou".

That's probably a difference between how all words ending in -ous are pronounced, i.e. a difference of dialect only; both locations would probably both be pronounced the same for any particular person.

I am just speaking from my experience with the folly that was the east-west highway proposal from Calais, ME to Plattsburgh, NY...which was even to tie into the Rooftop, and we all know what the status of that is.

Perhaps this may be the reason why I cringe when people do not pronounce the name like the car (which I used to drive, BTW). For example, take Calais Campbell, who, IIRC, is the defensive end for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Every time I hear the announcers say his name ("ka-lay-is"), I just want to throw something at the TV and wonder how the hell his parents screwed it up so badly.

In the US market from 1981 through 1987; Pontiac's version of the Chevette was the T-1000 (1000 from '84 onward).  From 1962-1971, Arcadian was actually a separate Canadian-only GM brand using the Chevy II/Nova body.

More recently & even though such is a CUV; there is the GMC Arcadia Acadia.

So, how is the name of the animal pronounced? Shouldn't that be the pronunciation for both the car and the football team? I always thought that people who pronounce the car "Jag-you-are" are being pretentious. Same with "Porsh" vs. "Porsha."

The VW Touareg is named after a north African tribe. I think that would count?

Technically, although it's named after the city (where I live in WA), or perhaps the nearby mountain, Tacoma is also the name of a suburb in Sydney, NSW.


EDIT: I see "US" in the title now. Guess my contributions won't count. I saw Ateca mentioned above but didn't see the whole comment.

Since the animal comes from a language in which the root word has three syllables, and the derived word has two, then something similar to "yag-whar" would be a closer pronunciation.

The pronunciation of the German car brand is named after someone's last name, so "Porsch-a" (although the final syllable sounds halfway like an "eh") would be correct.

At the end of the day, they're product names...and if the manufacturer says it's a Jag You War because it's a vehicle, not an animal, then that's the way the ball bounces. If it sells, then they shouldn't care what it's called by the owner.
