The dialect of residents of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Known for their use of long vowels and accenting the first syllables. Also the dropping of the words "to" and "the" in correct English sentences.

Yoopers also commonly add the end sound "eh" to sentences to show they are finished speaking.

They also commonly use the phrase "I suppose" to excuse them selves from any situation.
