For instance, Northern Virginia has a very distinct accent that is very different than even the rest of Virginia. I pointed it out to one of my co-workers and he was like I don't have an accent and was all self-concious. But they say their O's like "e-oo" instead of "oh" and they don't say their L's. So, instead of saying "hold on"...they say something more like "hoe-d on." I wondered if they have an accent and don't notice it then maybe I do too? Ever since that day Jen and I have been picking out words that I say funny. Here are a few examples, I listed my way first and Jen (she's from Jersey) second.
Heroes: Do you say he-rows or here-oes?
Grocery: Do you say grosh-ery or gross-ery?
Coupon: Do you say cue-pon or coo-pon?
Those of you from Utah (or elsewhere) will have to tell me how you pronounce those words or if you can think of any other words that might be good ones for Jen and I to test.
