[ahem]
cheese-food


This is redundant.  Cheese is food.  If you have to add that hyphenation, the substance in question
probably isn't actually food at all...   Sorry CC.

The Boston accent kinda annoys me.

Pahk the cah in Hahvahd yahd... yer a wicked losah...

IT'S JUST AN R. IT'S NOT TOO HARRRRRD TO PRONOUNCE. aaaaaargh.

I have to agree. The accent just seems...lazy. It's not too difficult to enunciate consonants, is it?

haha I kinda like the Boston accent.
Just because here, it's TH and T and basically the ending of most words that aren't pronounced.

"So wha'?"
"De" (the)

Also here we say things like "usen't"
There is another really retarded thing that they say here but I can't remember what it is.

Haha oh god to many non-words in this country. For example "thrun", the past tense of throw apparently - She thrun the ball at me.

I think it's mainly used in the south, in Carlow and Limerick and those types of places.
I have a cousin from Carlow and friends in Limerick and I have heard people from both places saying quare. :)

Are we so low on words that are not words, that we're now using words that are, in fact, words?

Really?  That seems backward to me...

Shouldn't the Scots-originated terminology be more prevalent in the north?
(Seriously, I'm curious about Scotland/Ireland migrations going back...  oh, 1600 years or so, and this seems off no matter what the time-frame.)

It is more prevalent in the North. I've heard it many times from many different people.
