What does this mean?
Upload the Wav/MP3 file / Record Appalachia in your own voice
Type of Name:  Mountain range, region, a people
Origin:  Cherokee
Additional Information:  It has been misconstrued for decades the correct pronunciation of the word Appalachian. People are incorrectly emphasizing the 3rd syllable as "lay" which gives it the long A sound. The word is a Native American word, which has NO long A's.

To remember the correct pronunciation, think of "Apple at cha" (I am going to throw an apple at cha (ya/you))

(Please note: I am an Appalachian scholar, along with hundreds of others and we are trying to reeducate the correct pronunciation as the former is an insult to the people)

The other pronunciation here is an insult to the people of Appalachia. There is NO long A in the Cherokee language (Appalachia is a Cherokee word. We (Appalachian Study scholars) have been trying to educate people because of the wrong pronunciation. It is like finger nails run down a chalkboard when we hear people mispronouncing it!
