“Correct Mispronunciations of Some South Carolina Names”

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Grace Morris Cordial on January 31 at 3 p.m. for this fun, educational program. Coosawhatchie. Pocataligo. Combahee. These words can be difficult for newcomers, or even old-timers, to pronounce. Join us to learn how to properly pronounce local family and place names the way native South Carolinians do while also picking up some local history tidbits. By “correct mispronunciations” we mean, of course, pronunciations that are considered correct in South Carolina but will probably seem wrong to you if you come from anywhere else. Beaufort District Collection manager, and South Carolina native, Grace Cordial will share fascinating stories of our local history, places, and families – and the correct way to mispronounce them.

Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext. 223. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Dr. coastaldiscovery.org.
