I alternate between LMAO and wanting to vomit when I hear this. My friend and I were doing a "radio show" and taped ourselves (on a Radio Shack Realistic tape recorder!). This is me doing the sports (spawts, basebawl, socca) and weather (weatha). There are some classic early 80's references here too....

No wonder I had to go to speech therapy! I sound NOTHING like that anymore (thank God).

Thanks I got a kick out of listening to it. I miss those Jersey accents living up here in NH. I never had one but my husband had kind of an accent-not really annoying but a north jersey accent. It is funny but he has lost a lot of it-but when he talks on the phone to family and friends in NJ he gets it back again

OMG!

And to think, I dated girls who sounded just like that for a good part of my life.
My son, who only lived in Bayonne for one year, has been de-sensitized to that type of sound.

Tahiti, you have guts to release that.

I think we need to amend this geographic envelope of what constitutes the NJ accent, as provided by Tahiti on this wave file. This dialect can be readily found in the Bergen-Hudson county area. As soon as you get into Passaic and Essex counties, this dialect, to a large degree, evaporates. In contrast, there is another 'Jersey' accent that exists, very unlike Tahiti's old voice. Go to Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, and you will witness a separate, heavily influenced Philly accent. My brother in law, native of northern NJ, lived in Barrington for 6 years, and lives in Delaware now. You should listen to him pronounce "Come on!". You'd need an interpreter.
