Yes, yes it is. Absolutely. And why is seen and peen pronounced seen and peen but been is pronounced ben..and then bean is pronounced been? The English language is stupid that's why. But the Arkansaw thing? I think that has to do with someones great great great grandma being a sheep.

Ok Australia isnt literal either, but it can be worked out .

But with ‘Arkansas’, I didn’t marry up the written word with the pronounciated word for some time.
It was the Area 52 of my memory.

Was just about to say I thought it sounded/looked like a French word...

Makes perfect sense, so pronounce this lake in Arkansas...Ouachita...I can tell you now, you're wrong.
Beautiful lake, BTW...going there in a few weeks.
