The Willamette


The Willamette
Уилламетт, река, протекающая в г. Портленде, штат Орегон. Чтобы запомнить, что ударение падает на второй слог, иногда приводят разговор, якобы имевший место между Льюисом и Кларком, возглавлявшими экспедицию к Тихоокеанскому побережью! Обращаясь к Уильяму Кларку, Льюис якобы спросил: 'Will, am it a river?"
