    the real question is how do you properly pronounce the word "gif"

    the correct answer is, of course, "JIFF"

    I'm convinced that "meme" Should be pronounced"memmay",kinda with a French accent on the end.Not "meem" :angry:

    Took the Dialect Quiz, got me within 100 miles of my city.
    Here, we drop the g's,
    Washin', gettin', goin', havin' and we add r's where there aren't any.
    Bugs when I hear Golf of Mexico, it's Gulf.

    I think I've read too much or known too many people from outside of my region. That quiz gave me cities I'd either never been to or simply drove through.

    I'm Scots, speak Doric which is old English and Gaelic and a few other languages, and if I even write the pronunciation of our words here you still would not match to what is written hahaha

    Day-ta, root and sih-rup! I think it's a county thing too though. I've never heard anyone say rowt or seerup in the uk. In fact, when I heard those words spoken in American TV I had to put subtitles on to work out what they were!
