Jalisco has a silent J, right? Same with San Jose.
So if you pronounce them backwards, you'd keep the J silent, right?
something like "oh-ks-il-ah" and "Ay-zoh-Nas"
Don't bother sounding those out - just concede the Silent J point.
Now DO bother sounding it our for Juneau.
Does it sound like "Hoonah?"
Or you can take the Ferry.
