GEE WHERE DO I BEGIN!

My parents thought I had a speech impediment when I was 4, turns out, it's just how I speak.

That explains everything.

There's a town in MA called Worcester.
Pronounced Woo-ster. Several of my friends say Worcestershire as woo-ster-sher sauce.
Because "r"s are rare here in MA

Luna, you're going to have to teach me how to understand the accents up that way, because that is definitely not what the Mid-Atlantic sounds like. xD

I say "WORST-er-sheer", which is incorrect, but I think Worcester comes out more like "WUSS-ter".

I'm really punctilious about learning and using correct pronunciations, but for whatever reason I persist in saying worstersheer.

I cannot say the word 'growl'. It sounds more like 'grall'.

Ill try! Just remember - its Woos-ter or Wus-ter but NEVER wor-chester.

So... I just did a quick google and found this site:
http://www.worcestermass.com/pronoun...html#attleboro

A pronounciation guide to the towns of MA.

I don't have problems pronouncing words much, but sometimes if I get too excited I trip all over words and stutter. I also have this weird, random accent I don't understand why I have.

^I'm the same, but i think it's due to my Asperger's Syndrome. I tend to think faster than I can speak or not think while I speak and I need to correct myself constantly (it sucks at work. I ALWAYS do it when talking to a customer and I really hate it)

I use to have impeccable spsking skills until I reached middle school. For some reason I can never pronounice the " c" sound in decision or the "z" sound in civilization. I always end up saying desision and civilisation. T^T I think it has to do with the way I'm moving my tongue or lips.

I'm a little bit of a clutterer, I think, but it's also typical of downstate New Yorkers to speak really fast and blur words together.

"Littler" is technically a word (in some dictionaries), but is widely considered awkward and rarely used, so I think you can get away with using "smaller", "younger", or other synonyms instead.

Pretty much anything where I have to NOT sound like I'm from the South Side of Chicago. I never noticed it until one of my in-laws said I sound like one of SNL's Superfans.
