          Re: Pronunciation Debate

          Being from Minnesota originally, I still pronounce things differently sometimes. Disneykat will verify this as she makes fun of me for saying bag. For whatever reason A's and O's come out differently for Minnesotans a lot of the time, thankfully i've lost any trace of an accent for the most part

            Would that be MinnesOOOOta?

            "Hi I'm Gwen, and I'm here to warsh your...."

            Do you vacuum the carpet? Or pass the sweeper?

            My dad used to shop at Home Deh-po.

            Ketchup or catsup, thats the question?

                I am a Californian and my husband is from South Dakota and we are at war over what my son will call soda. I say soda, he says pop. So we are always going back and forth, coaching him on what to call it, one of us correcting him when he uses the other's term! It's quite funny, my son has started to do it to get us going. (Poor kid, he isn't even allowed to drink it as he's 3!)

                BTW I think I am winning the war.

                  in my mothers family, pop was the term used when someone passed gas. well, my dad used pop for soda, and that is what he calls his dad. they have been together well over 30 years and she still cracks up when he asks for pop or calls his dad pop
                  please be afraid.

                    I'm the only person in my elder family born in California, so I have a few strange things I've picked up from Mom's Maryland accent and Dad's Ohio accent. One of those things are words like BAG (sound more like beg) Rag, Hag, etc.

                    I also insist that my husband pick up Babo at the store. Anyone else know what I am talking about?

                    I lost Pop, Warsh, Crick, Tejous (tedious) and most others.

                    However, if you want to get into some funny stuff, my German MIL is very entertaining.

                      Heck, I'm born and raised CA, and I STILL don't pronounce words correctly! Mayonaise is Man-ays (which E still makes fun of me today). Pencil is Pincil.

                      My dad is originally from Greece, and still has a fairly heavy accent...so it's fun to hear him say things like "make the bed with clean sh*ts", and "those reepooblicans".
                      Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
                      Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
                      Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
                      Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
                      Marge: Pink.
                      Homer: D'oh!
                      Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

                        Yea, but I dont think anyone uses it together. One word went East and the other went West. ...at least from what I've seen

                          Where I live we call everything by it's brand name. So when ordering a drink it's I'll have a Coke or Pepsi. And I have been told I have a strange accent, it is a cross between a NY and a Boston.

                          Someday Ill find my love
                          And how thrilling that moment will be
                          When the prince of my dreams comes to be
                          Hell whisper I Love You and steal a kiss or two

                            :lmao: :lmao:

                            Yes occasionally "BAYG" will come forth from the mouth of Anders and I love to tease him.

                            Wow, I think I say some stuff funny, but have only noticed it because I have friends from MI, MN, AL etc who point it out. They say I have a "California accent". I woudln't say that so much as it has been the influence of my parents who were both from the east coast (New Hampshire). I say night, have, and can't...differently. Or so I have been told. I dated a guy who was from OH and she could not get over how I said Have and can't (haaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhve, caaaaaahhhhhhhnt). I never noticed.

                            I just hope that being that I am dating a southerner, I don't pick up "Y'all" or "daggum" (as in "I can't get this daggum thing to work") But it's cute when he says it!!!! :blush:

                              some of my friends and family in new jersey say "wooder" for water... quite the amusement.

                              also the state i live in is nevada with the first "a" pronounced like in "glad..." for some reason most people that don't live here like to call it nevada with the first "a" pronounced like the "o" in "god..."

                              "oh, you're from nevoda?"
                              wtf?!?!?!
