  • Uselessness, do you feel or know of any geographical or sociolinguistic links with the degree of r-coloring within the US? That’s been puzzling me for quite some time now . . .

  • Based on her peter piper pronunciation, it sounds like frogapplause is an R-emphasizing Amerrrrrican like me. So:

    Droopy drawerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.



    ...see? Totally different.

    November 26, 2009

  • Ha. Excellent! I love your droopy drawers recording, bilbycakes. I'd add some new pronunciations of my own, PossUnd... except all of my festering coldsores keep getting in the way.

    November 26, 2009

  • And bibly's done a pronunciation on droopy drawers, although it doesn't say coldsores.

    November 26, 2009

  • But even with any other accent...

    Can frogapplause add a pronunciation...enlighten us?

    November 26, 2009

  • WANTED! An Australian to pronounce the words: drawers, coldsores and applause (preferably in the same sentence).

  • You are missing an Australian accent, apparently...

    November 26, 2009

  • Drawers and coldsores rhymes with applause?! What am I missing here?

    November 26, 2009

  • Isn't RS supposed to rhyme? Droopy drawers, indeed.

    November 25, 2009

  • BTW what's rhyming slang for frogapplause? Droopy drawers?

    November 25, 2009

  • I thought it stood for - sky (Rhyming Slang) - in which case it belongs. apple pie, sky.

    November 25, 2009

    November 25, 2009

  • Frozen cartoons are the best cartoons, that's what I always say.

    November 25, 2009

  • As I'm sure frogapplause can attest, cartoons always keep longer if frozen.

    November 25, 2009

  • I first read 'carton' as 'cartoon,' and was wondering what good that would do you, and why you'd want to freeze it :-)

    November 25, 2009

  • On cleaning out his car one day a man found a McDonald's apple pie under the front passenger seat. The packaging was in pristine condition and there was no sign of mold or deterioration, which amazed him, since he and his wife had sworn off McDonald's food more than three years before. Still, it looked good. So he took a bite. And it still burned his mouth!
