wishashkMrs. Prince pronounces this word wishash (without a final -k), but many other speakers, including Elsie Barto and Amos Riley, pronounced it wishashk (with a final -k). This is a regular variation that extends to many words: for example, Nettie Rossig pronounced 'strawberry' lashk, while Mrs. Prince pronounced it lash.
