American Dialects

Interesting how Donuts became such a divisive factor :-)
Can you match the phrase with the dialect?
  • "Pahk the cah in Hahvuhd yahd" 
  • "Gag me with a spoon"
  • “Uh sen’ uh ansuh to de gal fuh tell’um uh wan’
  • hab’um fuh wife”
  • They a-celebratin' his birfday by a-goin' to the theatah"
  • "Ah'm dyoo home at fahv o'clock."


Google "American Dialects" for further info.
It is quite fascinating and has been extensively researched.
