    NYC dialect

    Are you from NY? Can you please give me some interesting examples of NY dialect: phonetics, morphology, and perhaps even semantics. Anything that can only be heard in NY.

    Thank you,
    Iza

    In the meantime, why not give these sites a read:

    About phonetics:

    (scroll down to "New York City (5)")

    About morphology and semantics:
