A bunch of snow fell on us last night and this morning; 4 inches here in Puyallup.

Just about shut this town down! The news was all over it; all morning long; amazing...

Maybe it is a cultural thing but we in the south do not "fixing", we always "fixin".....no g at the end.

Is it an educational thing?

Interestingly (to me anyway), a few years ago on the TV game show "Wheel of Fortune" a contestant's answer was denied as correct because the final "g" in a word ending in "ing" was not pronounced.  There was little the contestant could do because of a waiver they sign prior to the show acknowledging the judges as the final say on any answer.  But it did start a minor firestorm on social media about whether the Southern enunciation that so often 'drops' the "g" is proper or not.

I'm not sure if anybody's mind was changed, but I did agree with one scholar's explanation.  He asserted that while the spelling may include the letter "g" common vernacular in some areas of the country choose to make it a silent "g".  One argument exampled the pronunciation by some folks of the word "about" spoken as "aboot".  I felt that was a good example of regional dialect defying phonetics.

I also drop the "g" sound in my speech (have all my life) and don't consider it improper English.  But my personal English also includes the word "gonna" as a contraction of the two words "going to". 😉

Then there is the added "r"  on words such as "idea" that confuse those from certain regions.

Everything in Texas must be broken because everyone is "fixin' " to do things.

And then we have the issue of the silent "r" in Yankee territory.

Beginning in earnest about 25 years ago the south began to be flooded by economic refugees from up north. I frequently encounter folks from Illinois, Detroit, Joysey, etc. It seems they all made their former lands of Eden a crime and tax infested hell on earth so they want to spread the misery and bring it down here. Anyway every once in a while one of them has that god awful Boston or Minnesota accent with the typical southern style speech inflections of a dropped "g".

Picture someone from Minnesota talking like they are from Alabama. They must have watched Sling Blade a lot.
