dear andrea higgins heslin
well that was nice and all learning about boston accents. the only thing is which boston accent are you talking about. you see there is a harvard ,cambridge, boston, dorchester ,southboston and suburb accent.
I have four of them cambridge,harvard,boston,and suburb. its nice to know about bostonians not having any problems with pronounciation of middle letters. perhaps you havent heard anyone say wooster which is spelled worcester.I have lived in boston a short 53 yrs. my grandmother whose parents [her mom was the heslin] imagrated here in 1870 spoke boston dialects like other bostonians .her son my dad went to harvard and i grew up a short distance from harvard sq.spoke the same way my grand mom basicly did. my mom who was born in 1920 spoke the same as my grandmother we havent changed that much. if you look at irish imigrants to boston today you might see why the f is there.
the sharpest difference of bostonian dialects is between harvard and dorcester.harvard is jfk and dorcester is lenny clark..it was nice to hear what you said really. :)
