What is the correct pronunciation of "Antonia" from the novel My Antonia?
In my copy, there is a footnote on the first page in Chapter 1 which explains how the name is pronounced. It reads as follows:
"The Bohemian name Antonia is strongly accented on the first syllable, like the English name Anthony, and the i is, of course, given the sound of long e. The name is pronounced An'-ton-ee-ah."
