    ^ yeah, that's jersey (joisey) dialect. they toin tings into soundin like theyya ah's ah missing (some r's disappear and they usually move the short o, like in english dog, to "dwag".)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vkTN4-GZQQ - cute video, it's a decent real example.

    on the other hand, there's also (california) "valley girl" (like, whatever, oh my god):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fGZtrBeDcQ - parody, but funny.

    i can only attest for the existence / accuracy of the jersey accent though, since i've lived in new york. no idea about the actual prevalence of the valley girl, lol.

    Like, I know, like.... Oh My God! Like seriously. Like how can people like, talk like that like.... guhhhhhhh.

    If it was actually prevalent around here, I must be hanging out with the wrong people. But there are some people that tend to use "like" and "ummm" a lot when presenting something -.-.....

    There IS one word that is used quite a bit around here though... that word?

    Hella (hecka). Somehow this word got invented in North Cali....

    Some of the Valley Girl terminology has become extinct by now, but overall it's still pretty prevalent. Even here in Northern California, there's quite a bit of the Valley Girl accent.

    I still slip into the accent sometimes. Like, I know, right? It's like just a different way of speaking, so whatever.

    Yes, 'hella' belongs to the Bay (Northern California near SF). I don't know to what extent it has spread around the country. I don't use it that much, but I still think it sounds hella cool :P

    I remember briefly having a USA accent and saying "Oh my gaaad" (imagine a Nu England accent) is one of my first memories.

    one of my first memories was me 3 and watching my brother build a snowman. I remember the age because we lived in Chapel Hill,NC until I was 3 1/2 and we only had one substaintial snow storm. Of course it was the first year I formulated memories so I was under the false impression that winter=snow no matter where you live. So when we moved to Memphis I was dissapointed for the next couple of winters, than I finally made the connection. But the tv said winter=snow. Gotta love little kid logic though.

    Ok, ok, I have a contender. How annoying is this phrase: "Naked as a fish at night"?

    That one is great, I'm definitely considering adding it to my lexicon.

    None of the words mentioned so far bother me.
