The Joisey Accent

450px-Bruce_Springsteen_1988We 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:

1. Southern
2. New York
3. Western
4. New England
5. New Jersey
6. Canadian
7. Midwestern
8. Mid-Atlantic

So what do you think? Do you love the NJ accent or hate it?

  1. Lol. It’s funny that this survey was taken and even funnier that NJ is #5! Lol.
    I’m a Jersey Girl so I love the accent. It gives us personality. However, I don’t think it’s as exaggerated as some people make it out to be.
