: In regards to Hawkeye's American accent, the only thing that I can add to this discussion is that I noticed in the movie, Our beloved Hawkeye spoke perfect English while pronouning Kentucky--"Can-tuc-ee". A bit curious don't you think?
No, that is the correct pronunciation of the original Indian name. I forget what "Kain-tuc-ee" means, but based on my experiences at Ft. Knox it probably means, "Lousy climate with lots and lots of poison ivy. And snakes." Or something like that. ;-)
