Do you say, button?
Or, do you say, buh-in?
I've never been axed that question before, Rush!
In Utah, this is a commonly overheard conversation between folks who were born & raised in Utah and Utah transplants. The Utah accent seems to be one that has dropped the Ts.
So, do they say they're from Yooaaahhh?
Ha ha ha. Almost. It's the cities that get pronounced without the Ts. Or maybe a soft T is a better way to describe it.
Nope, I good at keeping my T's. I can be lax on my G's though.
I say the t's. Cant stand it when people drop them, srs, pet peeve of mine.
Ha ha! I see. Thanks for not taking offense, jimboguy. I just thought it was amusing for Utah to become Yoooaahh, lol!
Almost never drop my T's but I know some people who throw their D's around all willy nilly
Sounds like a new slogan for Bu'erfinger!
We drop them around here.
I notice everyone on HGTV looking at homes will say "this is a great entertainment space" with an emphasis on the first "t". I usually hear it pronounced without the first "t" like in "energy".
That's what she said! (I think!)
We say our T's in Texas. Our A's our drawn out- dialects change as does the tooth to tattoo ratio the closer you get to the Louisiana border. You see more jeans, hats, and cowboy boots in West Texas-- and better football players. North Texas close to Oklahoma--- no one knows what the hell goes on. I'm from Central Texas- we have no accent- it's the rest of you people droppin' your t's and sayin things like yuse guys etc. Or those Canadians- eh.
I think it is more generational than regional. It drives me crazy.
And conversate. No such word. There are a few others but they don't come to mind right now.
Now that I'm older I understand why old people seem cranky.
This girl's 15 minutes need to end now!
Not offended in the least. It is amusing! Here's a meme I found that gets at your very question:
Nope, we keep our T's around here. I don't know anyone in my area (Seattle area) who drops them.
Separate names with a comma.
