    That video is too funny!

    As for losing accents - not completely I don't think - people still ask me where I'm from and I've been in Philly for 23 years now.

    Of course, some of the things Philadelphians say is just "not right" - down the shore and yous makes me nuts.

    Funny! I'm from Montana, so I have a slight Canadian accent, I guess, I overpronounce my a's sometimes. But I think the accent here is funny, too. Like people pronounce it like woulder instead of water and houwme instead of home and yuns!

    Every part of PA has a distinctive manner of speaking prevalent to that area. I can tell a Philadelphia native from a Harrisburg/York person, as well as the people who live in the Hazleton and (good grief) the Old Forge communities.
    Me? Dere ain't no way dat I got any lousy accent. Youse just ain't hearin' me good!
    I would venture to say that every once in awhile the Southern slips out because I still say Ya'll , tar= tire, hoe = hole, britches = pants, and a few other words crammed together that I never really realized I said till I listened to Jeff Foxworthy. I try to enunciate each word when I speak with someone so I don't sound stupid because of stereotyping. My relatives from the South crack me up because they sound strange to me now especially when they say poot for passing gas. It's really funny with a Southern accent.

    When I listen to that Southern cook on TV can't remember her name, the older blond lady, her accent sounds very exaggerated to me and I can't stand to listen to her because she sounds fake. I'm proud of being a Southern, but I hate when people think I'm ignorant or a hillbilly. I have lived in many places so I kind of adapted to different accents so I think it sounds normal until a few southern things just slip out.

    Anyone else from yin'z country? Seems everyone is from the Philly side of the state!

    Too funny about the accents! I moved down to DC for a few months, and everyone commented on my PA accent....which I couldnt understand because I thought I talked like everyone else there... But I guess we do have our own language, even from the west and the east side of the state. I love it

    My wife and I vacation regularly on Martha's Vineyard... pardon me, Mahthuh's Vinyahd, and I've noticed that not all local residents speak with that unique New England-JFK accent. I brought this point up in conversation with a local store clerk and he said, "Sir, the only one here with an accent is YOU."

    Hey! Take it easy! I'm a Red Sox fan too!

    Do you pronounce your city as LANcaster, or LancaSTER?

    Yep. Originally from Johnstown now living in Somerset. Went from "yinz" to "youse" in 30 miles. (I still say yinz, youse is just wrong!)
    I really don't mean to sound like a witch. It just comes naturally.
