Pecan, in spite of the inevitable disdain incurred in polite circles, is not pronounced "pehcaahn." It is pronounced "peekan" even by the people that grow the trees and harvest the nuts.

I grew up where they grow them too and everyone pronounced it pe-CAHN. It's like there's different accents or something within the US.

I was raised amongst the "peekan" speakers but somehow I've adopted the peh-KAHN pronunciation. No one has ever challenged me about that
