In this undated file photo, Davy Crockett, American pioneer and member of the U.S. Congress, is shown in a portrait drawing. It’s pronounced "app-uh-latch-uh," not "app-uh-lay-sha.” Lawmakers give the pronunciation lesson in a resolution calling for the state’s Tennessee Blue Book to discuss how people in Appalachia talk. A Senate panel advanced the proposal Tuesday, March 26, 2019. The resolution also ties the speech of Appalachia to other parts of the country, noting that Tennessean Crockett and other Appalachians traveled to parts of Texas, likely bringing the construction “liketa” with them.
