|1.||New York Accent|
A New York Accent is how working class whites in the city speak. It involves dropping r's off words that have them (father-fatha) and adding them to words that don't (soda-sodar). Changing and adding "oi" in words (oil-erl). Pronouncing the "th" as a "d" or "t" (the-da)(through-trew). There are three major New York accents:Italian, Irish, and Jewish. Blacks speak differently that would not be considered a New York accent. The New York Accent is more prominant in older people and is being lost in younger people as they imitate fake upper class whites from the midwest that they see on tv.
Guy 1: I'm gonna take da LIE tah go see my fatha out on da island.
Guy 2: You have a heavy New York Accent
Guy 3: Yeah, I was born in Bushwick
The most argued accent in the country. A lot of people in New Jersey dont have the accent. But a lot of the state do, some thicker than most. Most of the south part of the state don't have an accent and also in North West jersey where the accent isn't as common. The accent is mostly found in the North Eastern region of the state like Bergen, Hudson, Passaic, Essex, and Union counties.
The accent is similar to the NY accent but at times there is a distinct difference that most people cannot tell apart.
No one says Joisey for the record, it is just a myth.. but you can come accross a few that do but very rarely, and there usually on the death bed border.
The areas where you'd find the Strongest accents in Jersey are Jersey City, Newark, Hackensack, and Paterson.
-You say coffee and dog funny.. are you from NY
- No, thats a jersey accent.
A tweaked version of the classic New York accent. It is adapted from one of the five boroughs of New York, Brooklyn. It is higher pitched and nasaly. Its more laid back than a regular NY accent.
Example of a Brooklyn Accent: Instead of "park the car" it would be "pahk da cah". Or instead of "coffee shop" it would be "cahfee shahp".
What most people call the dialect spoken in Staten Island, Bayonne and parts of Long Island. The actual Northern NJ accent today is a mellowed version of a New York Accent, which in itself has its origins in the original British accent. (As NY was a Tory region for so long.) NYers tend to drop their R's more than NJers but otherwise pronounce words like coffee and talk as (kawfey) and (tawk) And New York like Nu-yawk.)
With So many hundreds of thousands of people moving to and from the NYC metro area every year, The traditional Jersey Accent has all but disappeared.
|5.||Albany, New York..Upstate, NY Accents|
People in the state of New York all have their own accent, The City (NYC,Bronx,BK,Harlem, LI etc..) is what we call it, have a different accent then say people from Lake Placid, Buffalo, and even the Albany area..But yes New Yorkers have accents. I've lived in the Albany area for 33 years and went outta state and people askin me, so you're from NY rite..I answer yes of course I'm a proud New Yorker..more...
Someone on here said we have a Canadian accent, um yeah rite, we gots the NEW YORK one kid!!
I concider Albany something within it's self, neither upstate or central NY..We are the CAPITAL of NY!! Area north of Albany upstate, area's west of Albany to Rochester Central NY, Rochester to Buffalo Western NY
Albany being the CAP CITY we rock it like no other, a safe place for people to go out and have a good time with good people. It's an awesome college area, with in 20-30miles of Albany there are about 15 or more colleges, people have things to lose and aren't punks and pullin guns out on people, don't get me wrong ever town has that area you shouldn't be at, and if you know that area stay clear (some parts of Clinton ave, Arbor Hill..just to name a few)
We got Hip-Hop, Blues/Jazz, Hardcore, Metal, local talent here..We have our gay pride, we have our first nites for the arts.. It's an amazing place to live with a short drive to the City or the Mountains.
Living here Pleasure or Posion..everything is at your finger tips..
