ArcadianRefugee: ciberido: It's no more "wrong" than, say, ... "I love fish."[afgmustrock.files.wordpress.com image 400x300]
puffy999: firsttiger: I went through the same thing when I was in Oregon. The moment I said New York when asked where I was from, I got "why don't you have an accent?" as well as a stupid joke about how I wasn't rude enough to be from NY.Shut up and get me some steamed hams.

DubtodaIll: I'm Georgian and have never heard someone say "liketa". Maybe it's an Bama thing.
jigger: One southern phrase that hurts my ears is "used to could."Can you do a split?Not anymore, but I used to could.
Guuberre: How all y'all doin'?
Debeo Summa Credo: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: gfid: That's funny because when I was younger and told people where I was from, I'd often hear "That's funny, you don't have an accent." I haven't heard that in a while, not because I've developed an accent, but probably more so that I haven't run across uneducated idiots who thinks everyone has an over-exaggerated accent.Likewise, as a suburban middle-class kid 20 miles west of Boston, I've heard "I though you'd talk like the Kennedys".If you grew up 20 miles west of Boston, and didn't leave there long ago, you'd still have a very noticeable accent./grew up 35 miles west of Boston//still have traces of the accent, 20 yeahs laytah.
talkertopc: What about using accent as a synonym for dialect?

JasonOfOrillia: One of my daily coffee buddies is from the UK. He'll start mocking the way we say things, both the accent and the terminology, so I just start doing the same thing back at him. It's great fun./flapjacks are pancakes, not oat cakes, damnit.
