We might get mad when people make fun of it, but there’s little denying that we New Jerseyans have a bit of an accent. We have dawgs, not daugs like they do in Boston. We even tawk about our dawgs with our dawters. I don’t know anyone who says erster instead of oyster but I know a lot of people who say dey instead of they and dere instead of there.
Here’s some good news for us – Cupid.com asked people to vote on what they considered the “sexiest” accent in North America, and New Jersey came in 5th!
Here are the sexiest accents in North America:
2. New York
4. New England
5. New Jersey
So what do you think? Do you love the NJ accent or hate it?
