I wonder how many of them, like Kibosh, have a regional pronounciation?

Kind of like Des Moines? Whether you pronounce the final "s" or not depends on whether you are in Iowa or Washington. (Well, actually, the folks in Washington mostly don't care much. But it's official enough to be listed as a trivia item on the police department's web site: http://www.desmoineswapd.org/cityofdesmoines.asp )
