That's true. I think so too. Geographically there are certainly parts of N. New England that belong with Quebec, not to mention all the family ties.

I'd like to know how a lot Americans pronounce "aunt" as "ant", while many other English speakers pronounce it as it is spelled. Seriously, where did so many of us start to think the "u" does not exist?

I've always pronounced it "ant," but I have no idea why - I mean, I know people from the same area who say "aunt," so I don't know where the variation came from.

For some odd reason, my dad adds a T to the end of "cousin." Cousint.

Crick was a thing when I lived in MD/WV. Thankfully, it's been creek ever since. I've never understood why anyone would call a small, flowing body of water a crick. It's not something that can be treated with heat and massage.

In reading up on this, apparently in other places the words Mary, marry and merry all sound the same. They are all different words, gang, I hate to break it to you.

Pronouncing all three the same is actually the most common way by an overwhelming margin.

Dialect Survey Results

And, as an aside, 15% of the United States pronounces crayon as one syllable, with the rest "over-pronouncing" it

I listened to Khan's jawn and it sounds like, if hers is what you are saying is the norm, you are all pronouncing it like the name Mary.

Gonna have to record something to school you fools.

I added a couple items at the end that I found on a list that were said to be a little different for us: mad, towel, eagles, water, big leagues, windows, Broad Street.
