    My late ex-father-in-law had a habit of calling his Suzuki a Suzuski. What can I say... great guy though. I think it was more a term of endearment as opposed to any sort of "ignorance" or derision. He was a lot of fun. My in-laws were the worst loss over all in the break up. Wasn't my choice. I remember calling my ex-mother-in-law just before my first Thanksgiving to ask how she made the turkey wrapped in bacon (automatic basting) and she gave me the details. That was 30 years ago now and we still do the bacon wrapped turkey, a favorite of everyone whenever we have the dinner wherever we go.

    I have been living in the Southern US for 28 years. I refuse to adopt the lazy pronunciation of 't's as if they were 'd's. So often when I ask for waTer in a restaurant, I have to ask several times. They then look at me strangely and repeat back "WarDer?"

    Don't tell them how a lot of people pronounce Italian (EYE-talian), the French freak out enough because of the way we say France with a short a sound, like pants.

    Cornucopia, I have a ‘regional dialect’.

    'Pan-ni-eh'. That's where I carry my bottle of Pair-ee-yer and jar of Ve-gem-i-tee when I'm riding to Yo-sem-might :D

    I suggest you guys take this debate down to your local biker bar and see how that goes.
