The Arizona Accent: Mystery Solved!

2 Jul

Two more cool things about yesterday:

1) The work I’ll be doing in my internship is in hot demand at the Court. They have no way to research precedent (how these legal issues were previously resolved by the Court) without going through many cases with a desperate hope that one case they find will, eventually, deal with this topic.

As Angus said (or maybe it was Max), right now legal research at the Court is asking around desperately “Do you know another case that deals with this? Do you? Do you?”

2) Guess what, Tucsonans? Arizona has an accent! I was talking with the ex-pats last night and one of them said to another in Bosnian, and then repeated to me, that I sounded just like her friend from Phoenix. Want to know our identifiers? Here they are: speedy talk, but there’s a bit of a drawl on the last syllable. I can definitely notice it in my own speech, does anyone else hear it?
