    @GoldfishPie:  I say “die-per.”  I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone pronounce it differently, and I’ve lived on the East Coast and in the Midwest.

    My grandma and one of my much older coworkers say “die-a-per”. And I work in infant care, so that’s a word I hear a LOT!

    @Woodstock:  Ha that’s funny. I’m from the Midwest and when I lived in LA people could not stop telling me how cute my “accent” was and I was always like I have no idea what you’re talking about!

    @BlondeMissMolly:  yea with dh it’s subtle.  But I have a good ear and can tell. Everyone can tell though when he says things like bag (sounds kind of like a mix b/w beg and vague) and league apparently sounds like “leg”

    @Woodstock:  I know exactly what you’re talking about with bag! I actually don’t do that I kind of say it with a long a (like bayg maybe? I don’t know how to write it!) but I know exactly what you’re talking about and the way most people say bag around here has always annoyed me!

    Haha… The only time I heard it pronounced die-a-per was on an episode of the Golden Girls… I think it was Dorothy who said it.

    @BlondeMissMolly:  What’s a Midwest accent? Like crick and warsh and ‘pin’ for pen?

    I knew a girl who said ‘crown’ for crayon, playsure instead of pleasure, and Valentimes for the holiday. Not sure if that was bad grammar or just regional.

    @UK Bride:  warsh is something I hear a lot, not sure about the rest. The bag example above is pretty common, but I guess there’s variations because I don’t say those and I’ve been told I have an accent.
