OED has only one pronunciation of diaspora (diphthong, followed by the
open, stressed ae, then two schwas). I have recently been exposed to
several people stress the [o] instead.

While looking up diaspora, I thought about "Galut". OED has no entry,
although the word does occur in a quotation under klezmer. There is also
the entry for Resh Galuta, where Galut is mentioned in the etymology
note. But no separate entry for Galut.
