Actually, this one is heard all over.

This is one of the phrases that foreign-English speakers are taught when they are trying to learn an "American Accent."

I was born and raised in the Midwest, Chicago specifically. I heard "Did'joo?" or "did'ya?'

When I took acting lessons, we were taught to speak with the proper "Did you?" pronouncing the "did" and the "you" distinctly.

Likewise, people would say "ternament" instead of Tournament. "Tern" vs "torn."
