I had to call the Chicago IPass helpline as I cruised through today, and the phone was picked up by a gentleman with the most spectacular Chicago accent I've ever heard. Do you have a Chicago accent? please say yes. I'm reading all your posts from now on in a Chicago accent regardless.
You know I can’t actually tell anymore? I’ve only lived here for about ten years, but I have lived here for ten years and probably I’ve picked some stuff up. Knotta says I get super Canadian when I talk to my (Canada-born) mum, so I do tend to assimilate accents, but I’m preeeeeetty sure only a Chicagoan could tell mine. I do not say D for TH or CH for T, which are the two big ones.
Anyway I gotta go catch da chrain ta da ehhport…..:D
