 This is off-subject, but may have a little relevance to the pronunciation of 
hosta names.Natives pronounce Indianapolis==In-duh-nap-liss.(accent on 
"nap.":-))   I THINK natives of New Orleans(I was a student at Tulane my 
first year in college) pronounce New Orleans==Noo Ar-yens. Yankees pronounce 
Houston==House-ton.Natives of Chicago pronounce it ==Shi-caaa-ga. 

How do you pronounce hostas ending in "-ana?"===ann-ah? ain-ah? ah-na?
Is Tokudama==DAMN-a or Dah-muh or Day-muh?
Fortunei?==Forchun-eye? fore-toon-ee-eye?
