Lebanon, TN is LEBB-nun. Arab, AL is AYE-rab. And Fayetteville, TN is FETT-vul.
Well, here in Oregon, we have Lebanon, not to be confused with the country, which is Lebanon. What's the diff, you ask? Well, the stress--the city's last syllable is pronounced exactly as the last syllable in the name of the state as pronounced by a Webfoot--Orygun (more or less), hence
LEB uh nun (more or less). If anyone here ever said Leb uh NON, I'd know they were some furriner--probably would say Yaki muh and probably even soda.
