Pronunciation Guide

I was so sure that the stereotypical Boston area accent, as portayed in movies like "Good Will Hunting", was myth. I haven't made up my mind yet, but I will say this:

Everytime a local asks me where I live, I say Medford. Usually this is followed by a confused look and a request that I repeat the response. To which I say again, Medford. At this point, there is normally more pondering and then an expression of the lights going on. "Oh, you mean Me-fuh!" It turns out I've been saying it wrong all this time. Silly me, pronouncing the r and ds!

So, if you want to blend in while visiting Mefuh, drop the r completely and skim over the ds like they are barely there.
