Okay, this will/should be the last of my trivial notes
for the day. I think my ultimate word is "apartment",
which I pronounce /@"p'Q?m@~?/ Is this idiosyncratic?
Do you ever catch yourself pronouncing certain words
in a way not like those around you? Is this a
linguistically recognized phenomenon? I have a very
"globalized" accent, having picked up things from a
lot of different states and countries, and it drives
people nuts trying to figure out where I'm from.
Sometimes I'm really self-conscious of my accent.
