If You Can Pronounce These 8 Words, You’ve Lived In Buffalo For Far Too Long

If you were born and raised in Buffalo (or anywhere in Western New York, for that matter), chances are out-of-towners have commented on your “accent.” And while we might agree that our A’s sound a bit harder than most people’s, we’re certainly not ashamed of the language we’ve picked up while living in the 716. If you can pronounce these eight words, you’ve lived in Buffalo for far too long. (Or just long enough, if you ask us!)

The next time someone comments on your WNY dialect, challenge them to sound out any of the above words. We’ll see who gets the last laugh!
