THIS. This this this. I had to spend 15 minutes hyping myself up and trying to map out conversations in my head for calling tablet distributors the other morning, and work out how to say tablet manufacturer names and models so someone could understand over the phone.
And sometimes I just get all passionate about things and get all stuttery, but it's never over any words in particular it just seems more about where they fall in the sentence and the emphasis that went into it and things like that.
I'm mostly just glad that my area of West Virginia is mostly devoid of the typical "drawl" you'll find farther south. I swear, I can't go through drive-thrus in Charleston, because some of them have super thick accents that I can't understand. Most folks where I live have a completely neutral accent, more like most of Pennsylvania (I know Pitt and Philly have regional accents, but I think most of PA is pretty neutral).
