As I watch my nemeses Lari Barager of Fox 4 News tonight, I noted she attempted to pronounce the plural of Texas. This has always confused me. In referring, for example, to the beaches of Texas . . . - If you spell it, I think it would be "Texas' beaches" and not "Texas's beaches." I feel pretty comfortable in thinking I'm right about that one. - If I pronounce it, do I say "Texas beaches" or "Texsuses beaches" (as Lari Barager did tonight)? I think you just simply say "Texas beaches." But I'm not sure. (Oh, how I so need a certain Blog loving Decatur English teacher to come through right now).
