If 'you all' = y'all, wouldnt 'we all' = w'all?

Makes sense, I can't argue

And you know full well where there's a southern state, someone in it has said that. Probably comes out sounding like "wheel".

Edit: S#, I just said it for the hell of it, it does come out "wheel", like for "we'll/we will".
Never mind, killed my own jab, lol.

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?


Did you eat yet?

It just dawned on me re-reading the thread that I'm wiped out enough tonight to have not noticed earlier, I mixed up "enunciate" and "annunciate" every single time.

That's enough internet for me tonight. Time to hit the hay.

What always got me were:

Gah-radge instead of Ga-rodge (Garage. My friends Mom says it like this. Canadian).

Also, people that say "labtop" or "melk" or "pellow" or "her-b" instead of 'erb'


Just dialects and slang, regional etc.

From my home town the word "hella" instead of "hell of" is popular.

"Yo bro, im hella hungry for some taco bell."



Kids seem to have funny pronunciations of words. As a wee lad id say "Moatcan retrol" instead of Remote control, oatmeal was yoatmeal, and yellow was lello.

I once heard a Michigan hick of Kentucky decent say "pillar" (pillow).

My favorite for that household was "happier than a baby in a barrel full of titties"

"Stink pretty" (perfume) was a good one too, but its not much use as it requires explanation for anyone to get it.

Although "chawing backker" (chewing tobacco) still warms my heart.

I enunciate clearly beacuse i am a complete and utter grammar Nazi. Unless i'm being "down with the kids", and then i just sound stupid (to me and probably even more to them!).

Thank you. Thank you everyone. I've prepared a few words to mark this occasion:
Three years ago, I promised to lead you to a new dialect.
We've endured a difficult journey.
We've all lost, we've all suffered, and the truth is, I questioned whether this day would ever come.
But today, our journey is at an end.
We have arrived!


Admiral Adama's speech as they discover "Earth" (Season 4):

Three years ago, I promised to lead you to a new home.
We've endured a difficult journey.
We've all lost, we've all suffered, and the truth is, I questioned whether this day would ever come.
But today, our journey is at an end.
We have arrived at Earth.


As I was contemplating some absurd speech for that, and looking for the gif, I just so happened to be right at that point in the series this week. He actually uttered it as I was pasting in the gif. Too perfect! True story. One of the best series ever!
