    1. I hate to admit this, but I definitely say it one way or the other about 99% of the time. The problem is, when somebody asked me this question, I honestly could not think of which we I usually say it! Isn’t that ridiculous?

    1. Washington and Idaho are generally COO-pon…But it might be more of a fifty-fifty, really. OR it could be mood related. Today I’m in the mood to say COO-pon, but tomorrow I might very well prefer to use a CUE-pon. hahaha

      1. Until two seconds ago I could have sworn I said it CUE-pon every time. Then I said it out loud and whaddya know but I said COO-pon. I’ve been a secret COO-pon’er this whole time without even realizing it!

        I find this happens sometimes, now that I’ve been away from Michigan and my family so long; I won’t realize I’m saying something differently (e.g. soda instead of pop) until I go home and revert to my childhood ways.

        1. My husband is from Wisconsin where they they AWE-nt for aunt, but here in WA/ID we say ANT, so I find myself going back and forth all the time depending on which side of the family I’m referring to when I say it. 🙂

  1. I hear it both ways around me so much, I don’t even know. My brain says that it should be koo pahn, but I suspect my mouth occasionally says it the other way.
