Way yew pernounce words yew must be frum…

By Willis Webb


Texas’ regional accents are a source of fascination. Trying to study them is difficult, probably even for an English professor. If you’ve read my missives more than occasionally, you know I love Texas, I love Texans and I love Texas lingo. When encountering a differentsound than one you hear every day, it pays to listen. If you can  identify it and reveal that to the speaker, it will often amaze them. It’s also a great door opener with a new acquaintance. For purposes of this bit of examination, a couple of things need to be established. First, I’m no expert. Second, the designations here would probably not be “approved” by a professional linguist. Ooookay.
