anyone who pronounces "square root" as "square rut" is not a michigan accent, its a fucking stupid person who speaks poorly.
you notice little things like pop being pronounced pahp...
The Michigan accent is the best accent in the world...
The German word for milking an animal is 'melken'
And very noticeable words like 'sauna.' Oddly, the strange pronunciation on sauna seemed limited to just that word and not applicable across 'au' vowels.

Hey, you're preaching to the choir, but I met a lot of people in my time in Michigan who called the thing on top of your house a "ruff."
It's not pop, it's fucking soda.
you hear that a lot from people in the bay area trying to be cool.
"liter o cola."
I must admit, the first time I stepped off the plane in Lansing after flying in from Alaska, my first thought out of the airport was: "Why does everybody here sound so damn funny?"
There is a very noticeable Michigan accent that doesn't really exist outside of the state's borders. That said, you can say the same thing about Chicago, Minnesota, and other midwestern locations.
It's all coming together now. I moved to a bastion of Dutch-Germanness. Lucky I got out alive.
I remember my first visit to a Jack in the Box in MI, asking for an orange soda, and having some nitwit ask me, "Oh, you mean PAHP?" No, imbecile, I mean soda.
I'll tell you native Michiganders something else: Vernor's tastes like warm piss.
I don't think we need to get personal here.
fuck off, soda is carbonated water

you must be real fun at Klan meetings
Were you walking out of a Meijers, maybe a Krogers?
You're fucking high

Quit spending time downriver.
Why do you live in California if you hate it so much? Is money so important to you that you'd live in a place you hate surrounded by people you hate, except the few people who are from the place you'd rather be living?
Also, LOL at Michiganians who don't think they have an accent and blame Northern Michigan. All of Michigan has a very distinct accent, don't fool yourself into thinking that TV journalists come from the "Midwest" therefore it's neutral. There's nothing wrong with it, I love the accent. It's much better than Minnesotan or Chicagoan or Canadian, eh.
This was in the bustling suburb of Farmington Hills. My 8th grade algebra teacher used to say "square rut," drove me nuts. To be fair, he was a freak.
Correction. It's "soda pop." Some people call it by its first name, some people use the last name. I've always preferred the first name.
I think there's a perception that a Michigan accent is nasal. A kind of breathing out of one's nose while speaking. And I have heard it with many in Michigan. I wouldn't say that it is common with everyone in Michigan though. Of course once you go North, you definitely hear an accent.
But I think the most nasal accent in the Mid-West is with Chicagoans. Many native Chicagoans sound like the Ditka guys on SNL. They really nailed it with that skit.
If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind.

Even if you call it pop, is an order for "orange soda" indecipherable? Don't correct the idioms of my dialect just b/c it's strange to you, just get me a fucking soda. An orange one.
