Really like this. When I'm at work, I put on my best academia hat and speak their language, but once I'm off work, it's "he done left", or "he went and done left" and I consider myself a reasonably intelligent person.heh. watching something or other on youtube and someone is actually saying 'he had done left' with a straight face. not a stupid person which is why i like this. i feel like it's good for me to crank my definiton of what 'smart' sounds like a few inches broader.
i love colloquial speech, dialects, jouals, regionalisms - any of that kind of thing. i tend to pick them up wherever i hear them and hold onto them, from whatever context. accents are sort of temporarily fascinating but it's really the ways language gets moulded to serve a particular population's mindset and purposes that i like best.once I'm off work, it's "he done left", or "he went and done left" and I consider myself a reasonably intelligent person.
lol. i hear 'warsh' from a friend who grew up in saskatchewan and i have to close my eyes and remind myself what a stellar human she is every time and how unimportant things like this really are. for some reason it really bugs me, but the rest of these are great. i like 'ope'.@lilysocks go look up the "Hoosier Apex". That is where I live. Some more off the top of my head:
We tend to drop our g's at the end of words a lot (gettin', doin', readin', etc.)
- I ain't got none.
- Jeet yet? (Did you eat yet) Nope, ju? (Nope, did you?)
- Ope (Oops, excuse me, etc.)
- warsh (wash)
"d" instead of "t" in many cases
"Come again?", "Do what?" (I didn't hear you, please repeat.)
So, I've been immersed in my Animal Crossing island but I thought you'd be at least mildly amused to know that my town's tune is from everyone's favorite aria from the Magic FluteI could watch the magic flute. Or I could.... not. Hmm. edit: oh what a shame, it's already tuesday and so it's too late.
