    lol well I say it like doll. I gues the phantom tollbooth confused me at an early age.

    Wait, how do you say toll? agh /me explodes.

    edit: nah, you can't possibly say tole.. heh. It'd be like hoad in the tole... or something.

    My mum's from up North and even though I'm from London/Essex I've still picked up bits from her accent. All my friends find it histerical (sp) that I say yer, instead of year. I don't even realise I'm saying it like that but they seem to pick up on it :rolleyes: Does anyone else say yer, and if you say yer/year enough it sounds funny
 
 
 
Poll
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
