Some Call It Boston-ese
Our language is so famous, it’s been the inspiration behind countless Saturday Night Live skits. How about those famous Dunkin commercials? Remember Jimmy Fallon in Fever Pitch? He had to learn all about our wonderful vernacular, and he’s a Yankees fan.
When Do We Lose Our Accent?
That’s a great question. Some always retain a bit of the Boston-ese. If you listen carefully to me on WROR from 2p-7p, you can hear me slip back into my childhood tone, as if I was with Mom at Joardan MAASH at Christmas. Sometimes, I bring a grinda, to work. (In Philly, they call it a hoagie.) Being from WISTA, it took me a few years, to loose the accent. But it comes back around the holidays, CUZ, I’m with my family, and the influence is over-powering.
So, if you suffer from the same dark magic around the holidays, stop, take a sip from the bubla…….and take a look the Massachusetts TOP 50 Slang Words.
