    How do you say it?

    Recently I have been made fun of for the way I speak. This is fine with me and it is to be expected since I am from northern Michigan and I am now at Central Michigan.

    I was wondering if I am the only person pronounces falcon as fallcon. Maybe I am, but any other person that does speak up so I don't feel like such a weirdo who doesn't understand the English language.

    I pronounce it like "Fal"-(as in pal) "con" (as in convict).

    Yup, your a weirdo! :lol:

    Re: How do you say it?

    Now that's funny ... but I understand. When I moved from central MN to Tampa a few years back nobody could understand what I was saying and I couldn't understand southerners either.

    Shoot, my grandparents and sometimes my mother I can't even understand any more with all the thick Scandanavian dialect going on ...

    Well yes, all Yoppers are weirdos, but I can't help it. We aren't too bad in Iron Moutain, but it gets much worse when you move north into the middle of the U.P., and just for reference, Escanaba in da Moonlight was possibly the worst film I have ever witnessed. I thought it was cool that a movie dealing with the U.P. was made.

    So does this mean that nobody else says it like me?

    Re: How do you say it?

    People make fun of my accent all the time. My first year at college a girl from my dorm floor would put me on the phone to talk to her friends so they could her a "real" Minnesota accent. But I like accents so I guess it's kinda cool that I have one!
