Default Regional Dialects

I'm curious, PWFers, as to what dialects of american english you speak.

Do you pronounce merry, mary, and marry the same way?

How about cot and caught?

Mirror and mere?

Do you say very, wicked, or mad?

Do you ever say hella?

Do I live in The City, San Fran, or Frisco?

Thank you.

Frisco or.........the "Gay Bay"

There's only one "The City" and it's about 485 miles southeast of my location.

It's a Submarine Sandwich here, although you may call it a Hoagie, Hero, Grinder or Po Boy.

People around here refer to Soda as "Pop."

We have White Hot Dogs and they're the shit.

We have no accent.

The word 'wicked' is no longer used here except when describing something or someone evil.



Late.

I find that within a few hours my dialect will change to fit the region Im in, such as wehn I go down south to say Georgia to visit friends, or to say Ohio or even California...it all changes just because I hate looking like a tourist...
