I can't say Pumpkin. I didnt realize this until recently. It's a "punkin" to me. I also have my lovely nebraska accent, so I drag my As. Like Laaaamp, Nebraaaaskaa, aaat, caar. I say heeeel instead of Hill as well. I love my accent though. I think it's funny. Oh, and living in Florida makes me say Ya'll A LOT =)


I didn't know people in Florida say Ya'll. I think I have a different view on Florida than what it really is.. I have a hard time saying 'hill' as well. haha.

that's what i thought...

I was born in Ft. Lauderdale and grew up in Orlando (which in itself is very metropolitan) and i didnt get accustomed to saying 'y'all' until i moved here to texas... i alwayw thought it was too "country" but ended up using it anyway now that i'm here :)
i also say heeeel instead of hill. yay for us nebraskans. i've managed to avoid dragging my A's though. an at least we don't say "warsh" and "garsh" like many people in nebraska do.
Nebraska RULES!!! YAY!! haha.
I had a problem for a while when I moved out of Louisiana. When I pronounced words with a "th" in them, the "th" came out sounding like a "d". I'm sure you can imagine the confusion it caused...
