Nobody here says it that way.

You gonna take the word of people who can't even pronounce the name of their own city right?

Have I been doing it wrong all my life?

'course not Miz J - those uncultivated northerners'll say any ole thang! Your diction's true to Old Country roots :)

It’s a regional thang, to be sure:
How the word’s on your tongue and your jaw…
There is no ‘right’ way
Evolution holds sway
Despite what the rednecks may roar!
