Subject: Re: Drawrings
New Yorkers have added R's that were lost by Bostonians.
My business partner is an art therapist; when she gets an art therapy
group together, she has us do "drawrings." The only other time I've heard
of this pronunciation(and she has other linguistic ideosyncrasies that the
locals here have a hard time understanding)is on a Saturday Night Live
sketch about a little British boy named Simon who "likes to do drawrings."
My business partner lived in NYC for the first forty-odd years of her life,
and has since lived in Seattle and several locations in Arizona before com-
ing to Vermont. Any idea if this is a regional idiosyncracy from anywhere,
or is it just her?
