What Makes Languages Change? How Culture Shapes Our Words
Q: When you say it doesn’t “borrow,” do you have an example?
A: The word they use for automobile means “that it has wrinkled feet,” which is, incidentally, an example of how the words you have reflect your culture. If you’re a tracker, you’re going to be noticing the tire tracks—the focus of that particular word. And the word for telephone means “you whisper into it.”

Fuhgeddaboutit: New York accent may be dying out - Telegraph
"Long Island for example, was 'Lawn Gyland'. But, he claims such sounds have now faded from New York City."

my aunt used to always accuse us of our hard Gs, but in reality she was probably proud. I hope the fuggedabuddies bring out a noo yawk tawk revival.
