I mean, compared to all of the outstandingly heavy Long Island (and overall Tri-State Area) accents I'm surrounded by on a regular basis, it's quite remarkable that I've for the most part gotten away with such little evidence of my "roots" via my pronunciation. thank god, I'd want nothing more than the tongue I posses. here's where Long Island influence has worked it's way into my speech: (oh for those of you who are familiar with my patterns of speech, please alert me for any I have missed!)

  • drawer
    • pronounced "drawwuhh"
  • floored
    • pronounced "flaawed"
  • water
    • pronounced "waawtur"
  • yeah
    • pronounced "yeaiuh"
