A dialect of English that grew out of a desire to bowdlerize vernacular speech by deliberately mispronouncing vowel sounds. Modern Ninanese is characterized by its liberal use of uncommon abbreviations and by its inconsistent but pervasive substitution of the the short /ʌ/, and occasionally /ɨ/, with long /uː/, making "shut" and "fish" sound like "shoot" and "foosh." Occasionally, two- and three-word phrases are substituted with other phrases that bear the same initials.
