Sorry -- my computer thinks I hit post!


Anyhow -- please take this survey and post your results. I think it would be fun to discuss dialects, accents, regional wording, etc -- I think 'accents' are so fun and attractive!

It depends how tired I am. Depending on the time of day, how nervous I am, and so forth, I may sound like someone from East Texas or Connemara or someone from Ipswich. Most of the time I probably sound as though I'm from Nebraska, I suppose. I do not say things like "duck on a junebug" or "I'll whack ye with me shillelaghleh" or anything like that. At least, I hope I don't. I have noticed "y'all" and "all y'all" creeping into my daily use vocabulary, but so have the phrases "you guys" and "dude." If I got to Spanish mass or listening to my French news radio or something, I probably sound bizarre for a while. I do know I am one of those people like my father that tends to "lingual shift," adapting to whatever the general speech patterns around me are without realizing it.

I do that "lingual shift" too, Katherine! It's funny and sometimes embarrassing if someone thinks I'm doing it on purpose or to make fun! As a kid I was often asked if I was from England because I would speak distinctly and with some unknown change that stood out -- my Julia also gets asked that when people meet her too, but we are just Pennsylvania Americans!

Although I live in TN, I do not have a Southern accent. I am from California.

Would you like to hear my voice without sharing phone numbers? Do you like to pray the Rosary? If so, message me and I will send you information about the Sunday and Tuesday night Rosary Teleconferences. wave

This was right on I was told I had an inland north

This is what it said

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."


I am not from the city of Chicago but that is the largest city to my home town. I also had to laugh at the thing about carbonated drinks! Yes I do call it POP.

Keep the Faith
