Is it in New York or Boston they drop R? I would think stress of e in pretty should not be problem in south .

Why would they leave out e and stress ur sound? Should it be more you are preeeety

And in Boston and New York party sound like paty and car sounds like cah.

One of main dialect I found out is people in the south call a shopping card a buggy. And people in the south call a faucet a tap.

Also I found many people in the south call a cab a taxi.
