>>Can anybody tell me what a PA accent is?<<
I don't know how folks talk in Western PA, but out thisaway (Philadelphia northe
ast to New Jersey) the PA accent is so
thick you could cut it with a knife. I couldn't _believe_
it when I first got into a room with a bunch of locals... I
thought I was in a foreign country!
It's kind of hard to describe exactly what it sounds like..
when I first heard it, I thought it was some kind of mutated
British accent..."Toym tew phewwn hewwm" is the way they would
say "time to phone home"..
