If you're from Oklahoma originally, it's always easy to spot the recent transplants and newest members of the community by how they pronounce the town names.

For instance, those new to Southwest Oklahoma always refer to Cache as Cashay because that's the normal global pronunciation of the word, but it's actually pronounced Cash. The mistaken dialect is totally understandable and locals won't fault you for it the first time.
