Hmm, interesting... surely my college roommate would have said something to me considering he often enough tried to find what words my "accent" altered. I only admit to "coffee" and "quarter." Actually, I did cringe whenever I heard a classmate say "soder" and the like.

I'm not too far from Garden City. Maybe Lynbrook is special... or maybe I just tried harder because I needed a speech therapist when I was younger. Yes, I know :roll: , but it was because I had constant ear infections before the age of 5. Apparently it's hard to speak properly if you don't quite hear well enough.


I knew the Garden City guys way back in college. Now that I think more on it I remember the one who's grandmother lived on the East Side used to make fun of the other one whose family was pure Garden City townies about saying "Lon-G Ayeland". Hmmmmm. Micro regional accents?
