New Orleans yat accent

Postby Perry Lassiter » Fri Mar 21, 2014 3:01 pm

Go to YouTube and search for Yat Accent. Take the top one with the woman with dark hair and long face. What she says in interesting, but what she doesn't notice is even more so. In my experience, if I ask someone talking like that whether they were born in NOLA, they always say yes.

I enjoyed this, especially because I could hear her pronounce the words rather than relying on a phonetic transcription. But, Mr. Lassiter, did you notice that a number of the specific questions she addressed are from The Cambridge Online Survey of World English (http://www.tekstlab.uio.no/cambridge_survey/maps)
that I mentioned in my post dated Dec 21 under the Rebel-Yankee Test heading?
