You mean ramen noodles? Well, in English, ramen is said RAW-men or RAW-min (depending on one's accent), but Ramin is ruh-MEEN or raw-MEEN (again, depending on one's accent). Is that hard to say like drawer?

I spell it Ramin Noodles because his name is spelled Ramin.

Raw-men/min? I say it like raaa-men without the W. I won't bother changing my pronunciation now. People can f--- off if they expect me to change it.

Well, there's no W sound in raw. I was just spelling the word raw. The A in Ramin is said with that short O sound in the word raw. Is that the sound you mean by raaa, or do you say it with a short A sound as in the word ran?

yes


Why didn't the director yell cut and tell Benny he's not pronouncing "penguin" correctly? And how did he go 40+ years without correcting it? Poor guy had this paraded on international tv. Most people wouldn't know if Graham didn't highlight it.

Phew!


You and Steph should take this quick Dialect Quiz. I took it a few times because some of the questions switch, so I wanted to see if that changed my results, but no. Overall, I am a Southern California girl.





I was born in Hawthorne (which is in L.A. County) and raised there nearly the first decade of my life, so that pretty much set me up as an L.A. girl even though I lived in Riverside (literally two blocks from Corona) for 2.5 decades.

One of my classmates was born and raised in Riverside/Corona, and his was spot on to that area.



I have no idea what distinguishes a person from Corona to Anaheim to L.A., though. All sound the same to me. Now San Bernardino, that I can tell the difference. They be street talkin' in that city.




I'll let you take it and then post about the results from my etymology board, in particularly those from NY...

See, that's exactly what I noticed. For all of those in the New England area, their results were pretty much all blue for the rest of the country except for their little part. Guess you guys are total outliers with your accent and totally stand out from everyone else.

Well I’m definitely from Jersey haha



Is it jer-zee or joy-zee?

Definitely Jer-zee! Haha Joy-zee comes from New Yorkers

Spot on with New York (pronounced “yawwk”)

Pretty darn accurate!



I took it again to see what different questions I got, and this time I got Worcester instead of Rochester which is even closer. Rotary did it.

One person had very red marks, so she'd blend in in many places:

People from California definitely knew my friends and I were from NY when we ordered coffee and water.

There's no escaping it.

I have never in my life heard anyone call it "Joy-zee." Sounds like something a person from another state who moved to NY would say to sound like they're from the area and fails miserably.

Yea, we NYers are distinct. Someone from the South speaks and you can't tell the difference between Kentucky & Alabama. But a NYer opens their mouth and you know right away where he/she comes from.

I do notice Bill Maher's accent at times, especially when he tried to say your favorite word, drawer.

How long did they practice to be in sync over a zoom? Or if it was filmed individually, that sounds harder to sync up.

Imagine how confused you would've been if you came to NY without previously discovering that we say it like "draw"

Cool video. I like Jonathan getting himself a crown.
