How Do YOU Pronounce These Words?

Depending on what part of the country you live in (or where you were brought up), I am guessing you have pronunciations of common words that are different from other regions. Don’t feel bad, we all do!

Growing up in the midwest I never thought I had an accent as everyone around me talking the same way I did, but after heading off to college, I quickly learned that I did indeed have an accent as each person I met quickly asked me, “where are you from?”

With that said, I always love hearing how we all pronounce words a bit differently so here are some prime examples of common words that are pronounced differently by various people from different locales. And just do not even get me started on the whole “Gray Duck/Goose” controversy! Grab some friends for this one and enjoy!
