I enjoyed this post....brought a smile to my face....

 Doug and I can teach you the right pronounciation of the letter R.... 

Original content by Doug Dawes 92593-B

Boston is considered, by many, to be the capital of New England. Boston is filled with world acclaimed hospitals, universities, museums, art galleries AND has an abundance of redheads. BUT, the one thing people identify with Boston is our language, some call it an accent. There's even a woman in Boston that teaches people how to lose the accent...WHY, I don't know!

I've decided to provide a short tutorial. Once you get the hang of it you'll fit right in...LOL

It's my Christmas gift to you all.


There are other variables but too extensive to go into it. Just know that towns ending in "ford" such as Boxford are not pronounced Box Ford, many pronounce "ford" as "ferd" SACRILEGE!!! It's "fid" so Boxfid...hahahaha another is Peabody...not Pea Body rather Peabiddy. One other word "horse" = "huss"


You are now on your way to learning.

I pray that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and bless you with peace

Barbara Todaro - You made me feel like I was back in Maine! I'm so familiar with the New England language/accent. Of course where I lived and worked were many people from Boston, MA too! 

This is great. You made me feel right at home!

Morning Barbara.

Last year we drove through Boston.  Thankfully, I didn't talk to anyone, other than my wife.  Good thing, because I wouldn't understand what they were saying

LOVE this and SO wished I had been able to meet you when I was there last month, Barbara! 

And, I loved that Doug had dinner with us after the AR meet-up - I could listen to him talk all day long - love the accent!
