I feel like I've had this conversation before. [In reply to] Can't Post

I live in Annapolis, Md & my dad's from Eastport & he has some odd pronunciations like saying "ball" for boil. And we say wash as"warsh". Then there's nearby Balmer where some people say "warsh yer zhirt in the zink" instead of wash your shirt in the sink. I've also heard locals say "onny" for only.
