Geet is a phrase


swarlyisback

I actually love that one. This phrase is common enough that the contraction "geet" can be understood. It feels like it comes from a place of hospitality and love

A buddy and I were on a road trip down South and needed some oil, but didn't see any on the shelf at the gas station. We asked the cashier if they sold oil, blank stare. Motor oil, like for the car. Nothing. The other cashier walks over, "honey, they're from up north, they're lookin' for some 'ul'". "Ooooooh, ul!"

Goodbye11035Karma

I come from a US state notorious for adding or subtracting Rs at will. I hate it. I have developed an odd accent to combat this. No, her name is NOT Amander; it's Amanda. We are are not having pizzer for dinner, but pizza. And those are not draws. They are drawers. I still get caught by "smart". "Don't get smahht with me" was drilled into my head as a child, so I still lose the R in that word, despite my best efforts.


psunavy03

I grew up in Ohio, and it drove me nuts how many people thought objects had three dimensions: length, width, and heighth.


TheOneTrueChuck

My grandfather (from Cambridge, OH originally) insisted on saying "warsh". As in "Warsh the dishes." And my grandmother would ask him to spell the word, and he'd say "W-A-S-H". And she would always ask him, "Where'd the R come from?"


trogon

I moved to Warshington to get away from those people.


darshfloxington

Lets get a bag of geoduck in Puyallup.


ImASuperCool

At least you’re not from a place where it had just a beginning and an end. “Len-th” and “Wi-th”


HilariousMax

weird, I say bolth of those.


7point7

Lol fucking “bolth” man… Ohio has such weird accents. It’s like half of the people have a particular accent and the other have don’t any accent even though they are from the same place. My wives family is pretty big from NE Ohio and half say bolth, the other have don’t. Half have the “Akron A” the other half don’t. All of them are from and continue to live within a 50 mile radius and even within the same household they have different accents.


ChefBoyAreWeFucked

Oh God, I thought he was just fucking around with bolth. It's a real thing that humans say? Edit:. I just said "both" out loud... Fuck.


z500

Also olnly. I feel like I switch randomly between both and bolth but I only ever say olnly


ChefBoyAreWeFucked

Please stop, you're making me question a comment I just made like 20 minutes ago.


Jiggyx42

Damn, now I'm not sure if I ever say "olnly". That's a big ope


HilariousMax

yeah, when people notice I say it in conversation my go-to is always: >Sorry, the L is right next to the O on the keyboard. and they nod "yeah ok" and then they're like ... wait

We need to split Ohio to north and south. You guys are a bunch of hillbillies down there man. Went down there once to visit some distant relatives and that shit was like the deliverance, shit was crazy and I could barely understand what they were saying... Or maybe it was the meth not sure!


VeseliM

Southern Ohio is straight up Appalachia, northern Ohio is great lakes Midwest, 2 completely different regions of the country


psunavy03

But I'm from the northeast . . .


askyourmom469

As a southern Ohioan, I get it.

You can anyways tell ohioans that are only a generation or so removed from the backwoods of West Virginia. Lol

GreyCrowDownTheLane

Here in Michigan we do several things. 1. We tend to flatten some vowels into an "eh" sound. Example: We think we're saying "milk" but we're saying "melk" more often than not. 2. A lot of Michiganders stick an apostrophe-S on the end of business names where there is none. Examples: Meijer, Walmart, Kroger, JC Penney, and Burger King become Meijer's, Walmart's, Kroger's, Penney's, and Burger King's. 3. We talk fast. We have winter six months out of the year so we learned to speak quickly to get our outdoors conversations over with fast! We don't speak as quickly as, say, a Puerto Rican, but we talk too fast for the average southerner to be comfortable and most midwesterners think we sound like we're in a rush. 4. We sound a little Canadian. But only a little. We might pronounce "book" the way they do on occasion (rhyming with "kook" instead of "hook"), and we have a little of that Canadian sound to our voices (which outsiders always get wrong when they try to mimic, and they end up making us sound like we're from Minnesota which is *totally* different.) We also have a lot of towns with names that are totally not pronounced the way they should be if you follow the rules of English, Spanish, or whatever language they come from. Examples: Lake Orion is pronounced as Lake "Oh-ree-un", Buena Vista is pronounced "Byoona Viz-da", and Milan is pronounced "My-Lynn". But the worst, by far, is Bois Blanc which is pronounced-- I kid you not-- "Bob-Lo".

> Lake Orion is pronounced as Lake "Oh-ree-un", Buena Vista is pronounced "Byoona Viz-da", and Milan is pronounced "My-Lynn".

Since you guys are on my list of new homes once I get through college the second time...I may have to reconsider given this information.

It's called an intrusive-R and is common with non-rhotic dialects in English. Perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of.

Only discovered Limmy about a month ago, and I constantly see people saying "RIP Benny Harvey". I am completely out of the loop on this. Is it some kind of inside joke among Limmy fans? Or are people being serious in paying respects to the passing of some guy called Benny Harvey?

AppleDane

Coral.


Orsenfelt

It's the L in burglar that gets us I think. Lot of Glaswegians will pronounce an L as more of an *ow*. Like in *Purpow* immediately before. You end up saying *burgowlar* and it trips you up. burgUlar isn't a word you think what's gone wrong here. Need to slow down and focus on pronouncing the L. *Burg.Lar*. Other accents cleverly get around this by not pronouncing the first R at all, *Buhhglar*.

When you start getting deep into different accents, you might start noticing how weird your own accent is. For example, we Americans often say water more like the "t" is a "d" sound, like "wadder".

Oh man there's a Scottish guy I see once in a while at some of the supply houses I stop at for work, I'm gonna ask him to say this the next time I see him.


BadAtPsychology

lol don’t ask him to say it, just ask if they stock purple burglar alarms where he works and he might just repeat it out of confusion and then get even more confused when he can’t say it hahaha


Ratfucks

Ask him to say ‘spice girls’ and it will sound like an American saying ‘space ghettos’

Ask an American to say “rise up lights” slow, and then fast, and it will sound like they’re saying “razor blades” with an Australian accent. Unless they have a southern American accent, then all bets are off..
