People from Sheffield pronounce 'right' as 'rate'

And Dr Dre and other west coast rappers pronounce 'route' as 'rout' instead of 'root'

ever heard of the sapir-whorf hypothesis? american structuralism?


lmao...you're not getting it...thats my whole point...this thread was supposed to be kind of funny...not an english lesson. i dont care about the sapir-whorf hypothesis or american structuralism. the way other people speak has nothing to do with me. the fact is people say things like that generally because of an accent...no matter how technical you look at it...no matter how much you break it down with your hypothesis' and definitions and what not...in the end it all has to do with their accent.

this-dis
that-dat
eating-eatin'
beating-beatin' (basically anything like this with a country accent is annoying)

lmao...you give everyone a lesson their shit but lets see here...just out of what you just said im going to give you a little lesson...first off:

i never said thankyou...so saying you're welcome would be incorrect.

second of all:

ain't is not a correct term and therefore should be struck from you're vocabulary since you speak perfectly and know so much about grammar and phonetics.  ;D

YOUR

Who says "ain't" is not a correct term? It is a contraction of "are not, is not, have not, has not". African Americans also started using it to replace "do not, does not, did not". The word was very commonly used in the 18th century, but today has become disapproved as nonstandard. All it means is that it's not as formal, and more commonly used in habitual speech. THIS IN NO WAY MEANS IT'S "NOT A CORRECT TERM".

when they pronounce the a's in lava the same way as "sap" so it sounds like Laavaa

actually lava is pronounced that way.


naked (neked)


this kind of pronunciation requires less energy and enables you to speak faster. /a/ is a diphthong (two-vowel-sound) and /e/ is a monophthong (single-vowel-sound). You don't need to move your tongue from one position to another.



when british people/jewish NY people put an -er on a word that ends with a

Madonna (Madonner)
Pamela (Pameler)
Amanda (amander)
Soda (Soder)


ever thought of the phonetic enivronment in which these words occur? if a word is ending with a vowel and the next word begins with a vowel, the segment /r/ is often put in between to mark the word boundary. Yet, it might also be the case that those British morons  ;D add an /r/ in order to sound like Americans since American English is a rhotic language.

then they make words that end with and E sound like it has an A there

Butter (butta)
Flower (flowa)

it's not an "a" but a so-called schwa sound. It's easier to pronounce since it requires less energy (almost no tongue movement)

or when people can't pronounce their ch's

Chicken (shicken)
Chips (Ships)
CHilli Cheese (shilly sheese)

all these words start with an affricate (->tsh), a sound which requires much more energy than a fricative (--> "sh").

or when a W is just thrown in a word

Dog (Dwog)
Door (Dwa)
God (Gwod)

i'll have to look up my books to explain this one... don't know whether it's regressive assimilation or some other phonetic phenomena
 



or when people just completely leave off letters intirely
car (ca)



makes sense if you're british. RP doesn't know the segment /r/ in final position.

 ::) you mean like that? ::) lol
