As far as regional American accents go, I don't have much of one.
More than one person, upon hearing that I grew in in New York, commented that I didn't sound like I was from NY.
To which I've replied, "I'm from NY state, not the Bronx! The whole state doesn't sound like that."
But the one word that I've been called out on a number of times is the word "button."
I say "buht' n" really quick with the accent on the first syllable and kind of lose the second "t".
The people who have called me on this say something like "but tun".
I can't even wrap my tongue around that pronunciation.
How do you say "button?"
Do you have a pronounced accent?
Are there any words that people think that you say "funnily?"
(I also pronounce mountain like "mount' n" not "moun ten".)
