none pizza with left beef

It should be a rule of Tumblr to always reblog none pizza with left beef

ive missed you

None Pizza Left Beef haunts me to this day. I’ll be sitting there, minding my own business when suddenly I’ll think of this, and laugh hysterically, no matter what.

Every time I’m awake to see 3 am I’m like, “Y’know what sounds really good right now? None pizza with left beef.”

PhillyTawk: The Caught-Cot Distinction

This is a great video by Sean Monahan on the caught-cot distinction in Philadelphia English. If you’re someone like me who pronounces caught and cot the same way, it’s a great chance to hear what it sounds like for someone to have them as different sounds.

I also learned that not everyone who has the caught-cot distinction has the same vowel: the Great Lakes region, the South, and the Philadelphia area all apparently have different pairs of vowels here.

This probably explains why my trick for imitating a caught-cot distinction if you don’t have it but can imitate a non-rhotic dialect doesn’t always work. The trick is to pronounce “court” non-rhotically (e.g. in RP) and maybe shorten the vowel slightly, which will give you approximately /ɔ/, the sound people attribute to “caught” (courtesy of an Australian friend for whom “court” and “caught” were homonyms).

This trick is the closest I can get to making a distinction, although I still can’t always keep track of which pronunciation goes with which spelling because it’s not really phonemic for me.  Anyway, some people tend to totally get my pronunciation when I do it, it while others tell me I’m way off. I haven’t kept track of where they’ve all been from, but now I’m thinking it’s probably related to these different regions. 

Since moving to NY, my Philly-infected NJ accent has become more New York-ish, but I still have the caught-cot distinction, say “wooder,” and more than one Philly vowel has slipped through on “home” and “class.”

ETA: And yes, Mary, merry, and marry are all different.

This book I was just asked to copyedit sounds much more interesting than the proofreading job I have lined up for next week, but alas, I cannot do both.
