My wife and I moved here 22 years ago, coming from the Adirondack Mountains of upper New York State. We got used to the people around us saying "slippy", "the car needs washed", "jumbo sammitches", and all the rest - but still wince a bit when that comes from our own children! we're not really "language snobs", but there IS a definite line there that they crossed.... emoticon

Accents are very cool. Being from Poland and not having any prejudices I love them all. We often go camping to West Virginia and, although it is so close to Pittsburgh area, the accent is completely different.

I just had two SparkFriends visit Pittsburgh, one from Wyoming and one from Virginia. My VA friend has a bit of a Southern accent, which I love. My WY friend said she loved my NY accent. I didn't think it was that noticeable.

My wife told me she tries not to sound like she is from Pittsburgh. Mainly because of applying for jobs and such. Can relate as my accent is associated with being a hillbilly and dumb. Love hearing people's accents myself, and really nice to hear Pittsburgher accents. Having a southern drawl, I use Y'all instead of Yinz. Pittsburgher's have a unique accent to this area only and feel they should embrace it. I have only run across one individual, speaking over the phone, who's accent was thick and could not understand him very much, nor he could understand me. emoticon

PLANTAGO, You are far from Poland, for certain! Would love to hear your accent.

LOL, Being from South-Central KY. I get "your not from here are you?" with my accent. And if I have been recently talking to one of my relatives back home, then it comes out a bit thicker.

I still have a touch of NY accent, but I think it's only obvious to other New Yorkers.

I'm a transplant as well. I came here, along with my Seattle accent, about six years ago.

Me either, as I moved here in 2009 from South-Central Kentucky. My wife is from here and she does at times.
