I wish.

However, even my relatives that have lived here in CA for YEARS still have the accent.
 
2010-02-07 10:23:20 AM
It's alive and well here in the south.
 
2010-02-07 10:24:28 AM
It kind of bummed me out when I moved here that everyone wasn't talking like dockworkers from On The Waterfront or Nick and Nora.

In college, people made fun of me for talking with a NY accent, so I made an effort to change it. It's pretty much gone now.

The anchor on my newscast is born and raised in new york and you can't even hear it in his voice. I think it's a cool accent.
 
2010-02-07 10:48:48 AM
Local accents never go away.

Thank. God.

True.
The people with the worst accents moved to Atlanta.
 
2010-02-07 10:49:14 AM
Now if we could only get rid of the Boston accent, we might be onto something.
 
2010-02-07 10:49:14 AM
Oh thank God. It's one of my least favorite accents.
 
2010-02-07 10:49:49 AM
now the Negro Dialect is the most popular.

same in Chicago.

Yay! That is a horrible, horrible accent. You sound rude, snotty, and angry even if you're talking about how pretty a flower is. I hate it.
 
2010-02-07 10:52:07 AM
Thank God. You all sounded like a bunch of uneducated idiots.
 
2010-02-07 10:52:48 AM
The traditional Charleston, SC accent is almost entirely gone.
 
2010-02-07 10:52:52 AM
It is an ugly accent that makes the speaker sound like they have an IQ of 10

Kind of like speaking in German?

Good. I hate that phony lowlife overstressed on-purpose asshole accent.

I am totally right. You people who talk that way do it one purpose. Grow up and start talking like a normal person, bruno assholes.
 
2010-02-07 10:53:24 AM
well, being born and raised in kentucky, i guess im stuck with this southern accent forever. but im too old to change now!

Look who's talking coming from Alaska and AK. Rather sound snotty, rude and angry than retarded, retarded and retarded.
 
2010-02-07 10:54:07 AM
There aren't that many left, but the native accent around and south of Richmond, VA is awful too. It takes everything wrong with the Kentucky Trailer accent and accentuates it.

/met some very smart people with these accents and they still sound like idiots.

I'm not from Alaska. And neither is Sarah Palin, if that's what you're knocking.

Same thing is happening Boston, regional accents are dying out everywhere.

NO


The post is trash.

That should about cover it.
 
2010-02-07 10:55:43 AM
It's being replaced with the Spanglish accent.

Grew up with parent who were "Proper Bostonians". Worked in the South for a few years and to this day (20 years later) still get grief from a major presentation done at the Pentagon where I said "I shan't bother y'all with the details".

But only when they want to...
 
2010-02-07 10:58:03 AM
Wow. I had no idea that some people felt so passionately about an accent that does not affect them in any way. However, I'm not all that surprised.
 
2010-02-07 10:59:28 AM
Now we just need to get rid of the Boston accent.

And yes, I do realize the hypocrisy of saying that when I'm from the metro area of the city whose mayor talks like a Superfan.

Thinks that are offensive to the ears annoy us. Go figure.

exvaxman: "I shan't bother y'all with the details".

I'm going to work that into a conversation. But not a business presentation. Except maybe as a Power Point slide, just to see if people are paying attention.

Everyone in New York speaks Spanglish or Chinese now.

I never noticed I pronounced soda "soder" sometimes until someone pointed it out out to me.

/cool story bro
 
2010-02-07 11:07:33 AM
Besides, I'd take Boston or Noo Yawk over South Philly any motherfarking day of the week. Even the hottest chicks Philly sound like long haul truckers with emphysema.

I live in New Yawk, so I'm really getting a kick outta dese heah replies you farking farks.

The accent of a New York, Jewish woman is worse than the sound of scraping fingernails on a chalkboard.

Why do you think they started so many wars?
 
2010-02-07 11:10:46 AM
Nothing is worse than a New Jersey accent. I'd rather listen to Bostonians and New Yorkers than your average NJ retard. It's like the way they speak is purposely designed to irritate the rest of humanity.

moitz: Thank. God.

/said in a Chicago accent

Yeah, it's called Houston!

But seriously, I've been asked where I'm from in Louisiana and telling them I was from Texas they said, "Oh, cool, I thought you were a Yankee!" Imagine "yankee" pronounced with about 5 syllables and you get the idea...

Also been told I sound like a valley girl locally, but growing up in the eighties with my mom having trendy model friends left its mark.

I read aloud with perfect enunciation and people ask me why I can't have a conversation in that voice and I have no idea why I can't.
 
2010-02-07 11:12:10 AM
This makes me sad. I love accents.

USCLaw2010: The traditional Charleston, SC accent is almost entirely gone.

That's a shame. I loved listening to people talk there... Especially the old guys.
