How to pronounce OKLAHOMA ?!?

A friend of mine, who is a teacher,
once told me that in one of her Geography lessons,
she had difficulties getting some of her students
to pronounce the name of a city, OKLAHOMA !

A Malay student, read it as
O.K. lah Omar

A Chinese student, read it as
Okra Oma !

An Indian student read it as
Wok Kla Wo Ma !

Don't laugh, but do you know how to pronounce correctly,
the word.... "Oklahoma" ?

The Proper Way is: OKLA...(with a pause) ... HOMA
(There's a gap between the 'a' and the 'h'.)
Don't agree, let me prove it..............................

That name is mouthful. US has so many weird names for towns as well. You ever heard of Two Egg town in Florida or Uncertain town in Texas?

“a very DEEEEEEEEEEEEEP gap between a and h”

It must be read with an excited pause between a and h!
