Volunteer Efforts Help Keep City Beautiful

So, How do YOU say LIRIOPE?
New Orleans has a long history of interesting pronunciations. Take our streets for example… Calliope Street is pronounced CAL-E-OPE but, everywhere else it’s that thing that plays music on the riverboat. That’s just one example of many.

And, so it goes with LIRIOPE. Wikipedia had this to say about it: “The pronunciation of “Liriope” varies. Commonly recommended pronunciation are /lɪˈraɪəpiː/ lih-RY-ə-pee (US), and /lɪəˈriːoʊpeɪ/ lee-REE-o-pay (British), but there are many regional variations. In the southern United States, for example, it may be pronounced /ˈlaɪroʊpiː/ LY-ro-pee, /lɪəˈraɪoʊˌpiː/ leer-EYE-o-pee, or /ˈlɪərioʊp/ LEER-ee-ohp”

How do you say LIRIOPE?
Like tomato, it can be said different ways…
