Do you say "Should've Would've and Could've"? Or do you say them as they are in the thread title?

Do you say "Dint" or "Did"'nt etc...

So you say "Impornt" or "Important"?

Do you say "Warsh" or "Wash"?

I have a friend who says "Nakin", referring to what you would wipe your hand/face with during a meal...

Just curious...is it a dialect thing? A regional thing?

Why/how do you say certain words?

Well when I’m hungry for eggs as an example, I say:
Mungryfersmags.

I think words like 'warsh' might be a German accent thing. My grandmother still had a heavy German accent even thought she lived in the USA the latter part of her life.

She would say things like 'warsh,' and 'yuge' and sense of 'yumor' etc.

I have moderate hearing loss so people often ask me where my accent is from. I have a Deaf accent I guess.

Let me axe you something though. Who ever says 'impornt??"

I am a bit of a grammar nazzy so I am very in tune when people use the wrong word for a phase or mispronounce something. It drives me nuts.

That last one was from South Park, redneck for "right here".

I once worked with a old cranky Florida cracker. He'd say stuff like "over thaaaaar", and... [I had her in the bed...] "and I abuuuused that little fellar". I called him the "pirate redneck".

Nah, I'm from LA ( AL ), not LA the state.

I get confused when people from the deep south are subtitled on tv and I don't see the need because I understand them perfectly. Yes, even cajuns.

I guess to answer the OP:

Shooda
Wooda
Cooda

That's the closest approximation I can come up with.

If it's written Shoulda Woulda Coulda, than that's how I will pronounce it. If I'm speaking I will enunciate Should've Would've or Could've.
I've actually had a band-mate ask me once where I'm from originally because I "speak to well to be from America."

Years of speech therapy to minimize a lateral lisp, and stage acting training. . .

Who can tell me what I'm asking here:

Jeet jet?

First of all: it's shuddah.
Number two, or number three, of whatever the hell number we're on: what that guy said about the eggs is sure funny enough, here's what Mike Tyson preferred to say:
"Aye liketh eggthzzth".




Why/how do you say certain words?


Sertin werdz.
Not to be confused with: surfin' nerds.

Well, coming from people who say "soddering" even when the word is spelt "soldering" yet refuse to capitulate, and lets not even get into the alminium thing...

I don't really have anything to say. It - lol - speaks for itself.

Sodder on good phoneticians. Sodder on.
