The city of Boston
located in Massachusetts
pronounced in an urban Boston accent.
Used by poorly educated white people from Boston and surrounding areas.
Alternative spellings/pronunciations: Bawstan, Baustan.
I'm goin to Bwastan for the day. I'm gunna get some coffee (pronounced kwafee) at Dunkin and some donuts.
Something that someone from Bwastan would probably never say because they know better, but if they did it would sound like this: "I'm goin to pahk the cah in Hahvad Yahd." Translation: I am going to park the car in Harvard Yard. *** Please note that cars do not park in Harvard Yard. Harvard Yard is not a parking lot, it is a green and grassy area, not fitting for cars or people with Boston accents.
