This is a hard one. An Indian word, said, "po Po shia", with the second
syllable accented and the third and last syllable rhyming with ambrosia.

As for Dubois, Wyoming, the local custom is to pronounce it "du-boyz" but
surely this must be an American bastardization of the French name pronounced
du-bwah?
