My home language I would classify as rather typical. We greet each other with the traditional “hello’s”, “How are you?”, and “goodbye’s”. At the dinner table, conversation is usually started by the usual “How was your day?” or “Did you learn anything at school today?”; these questions usually sputtered by my parents, or mainly my father. A thing about my home language that may be different from other people is the sarcasm and meaning behind what we say. We not only joke around with each other, but when we talk we are very sarcastic with each other. I’m not exactly sure who first started this pattern of sarcasm but it stuck well with my family. I don’t think my family have that much of an accent. We were originally from New York. My parents (who lived there the longest, obviously) do not carry a Northern accent anymore. Being in the south for so long, they have become accoustomed to the southern dialect. Though, I personally don’t think they have a heavy southern accent, but my opinion my be biased because I talk the same way that they do. Out of my five family members, I think my brother has the strongest southern accent. He was only six months old when we moved to Charlotte and he has grown up only knowing the southern, Charlottian dialect.
