[cdt-l] pronounciations...

>>Absoroka - where is the accent?

It's Absaroka (the spelling) and is pronounced "Ab-SOAR-kah". This is indeed
the local custom as well, and a great way to tell the locals from the
visitors and trust funders, who tend to pronounce it "Ab-sah-ROH-kah."

>>Shoshone - is the "e" at the end another sylable?

Yes; in fact, the original English phonetic spelling that appeared in
trapper's diaries of the day was Shoshoni.
