I think I've mentioned that I spend about half my time in northern New Jersey and the other half in Worcester, Massachusetts. Well, my Bay State companions are known for pronouncing things in a very specific way (as are my Garden State companions, of course). And the DeMoulas chain of supermarkets from northeastern Mass is, in local dialect, pronounced Mahket Bayaskit. Worcester? Wista. Leicester? Lesta. Oxford? Oxfid. Haverhill? Hayvrll. I could go on, but we'll see more of that when we're up in Mass.
