27. That weird interstitial "r" pops up in the oddest places: Boston with Cuber,
the Appalachians also have "Warshington" as does Ballmer.

The thing that I cannot stand to hear is a broad 'a' where it historically is absent in American speech or in Southern England, the Boston equivalents of Hyacinth Bouquet tend to do this at times. . .

But then again, I find "fixin' to" perfectly acceptable pulpit level speech!
