I don't know about Webster, but here in my little corner of Springfield, we are fond of al(bert)sea. I think that we are going to be more favorable to a mispronounciation of Alsea, than "Oregun" being pronounced "Orygon". Good luck with your searching.

Yes, Denise was correct in her reply. It is Al as in Al Capone and sea as in the sea. Alsea. Lovely little place.
