Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

The denial is strong in here. Cleveland does have an accent. Listen to the Triv Show, that's it.

Re: “Coastal Taco Improves Its Game, Slowly but Surely

The biggest complaint I hear about is simply the process. Apparently you can't split tabs and they make you open a tab as soon as you arrive, and then all the food arrives on one tray as stated. Sounds like they should make a few adjustments to have success. I am still going to wait... perhaps by end of the summer they will have things figured out.

I had a fantastic experience there the weekend before the RNC. Great food, great service and you can't beat the atmosphere. Sounds like they are headed in the right direction.

Nope, born and raised in NEO and I've never spoken like this or noticed anyone I know who speaks like this.

Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

I've lived in Cleveland my entire life and NEVER have I said 'kee-yan-dee' for 'candy' or 'cot' for 'cat'. That's how people from the Pittsburgh area say it, not people from the Cleveland area. I'm confused.....

Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

Having lived here my whole life, I didn't really notice the NEO or upper-rust belt accent until I moved away. I assure you, friends, after hearing the difference... if your husband's name is Todd, you're calling him Tahd, not Todd. Naht that there's anything wrong with that, but we definitely sound weird anywhere else we go. Think how somebody from Wisconsin sounds to you; that's how we sound to everyone outside of this area.

Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

I have lived in Northeast Ohio my entire life. I don't know anyone who pronounced cat or candy that way. I have traveled extensively and people have actually asked me to repeat particular phrases for them because they say that have never heard anyone speak so properly and without an accent of any sort. When I tell them where I am from they say, "Oh - that's why!"

If there is such a deep accent here, it would have been helpful to hear of more than two examples ...

Re: “The Origins and Evolution of the Cleveland Accent (Yes, You Have an Accent, Cleveland)

Excellent article, but the claim that the Northern Cities Sound Shift represents "the largest transformation of spoken English in more than a thousand years" is pretty obviously absurd. How about the Great Vowel Shift or the cumulative phonological processes that led us from Old > Middle > Early Modern > Modern English?

Another sock heard from. Probably the same one, actually. I rest my case.

Re: “The Beach Boys/The Four Tops

There needs to be a periodic reset for music fans that this Beach Boys is the Mike Love/Bruce Johnston version. Brian Wilson - with Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin - is on a world tour that celebrates the 50th anniversary of "Pet Sounds".

Reading Clown-boy is like listening to Trump; annoying until you realize he just wants attention and is actually really quite boring as he rewrites articles in the comment section.

Re: “Dispatches on Skipping the Babysitter and Bringing a Child to a Classical Music Performance at Toast

I am a classical music buff, and definitely no fan of kids. The two do NOT mix. So yeah, I'm biased from the start, but I'm going to do this anyway.

You couldn't say no? Well, judging from the results, you should have.

But you brought your toddler "with" (you are most definitely from Chicago!) and if you're not exaggerating what transpired (just to get a few laughs from your audience), you most likely ruined the evening for more than a few of your fellow concert-goers. And probably for the performers. But what the hell, at least you don't owe anybody a new cello.

Of course the other patrons were (to you, at least) "charmed"...they were just trying to be polite. More polite than you were. You should have removed your son immediately...as soon as he started running around (why in hell did you think you should allow this? And where was the management?) and especially when he started shrieking. BEFORE he started shrieking.

You are a wonderful example of why many classical venues (AND dining establishment) do not allow any children under a certain age, under any circumstances. You felt entitled...to a night out with your kid...or just entitled, period, So you brought him along (not "with"). Big fat fucking mistake.

Hell, I really do understand how you need to get out of your underpriced house occasionally, especially as a new parent...and that your husband is a classically-trained musician who probably loves (and misses) events like these. But fer chrissakes, you should have just forked over the forty bucks and left your son at home. At least for this occasion. Seriously.

Maybe in a different place, or attending another type of music event, with another type of audience, things might have gone more smoothly. But they didn't. And the kid isn't at fault here...at the toddler stage, kids will be kids. You're the one to blame. You blew it.

Next time, be more considerate. Think. Please just say no...and then just take him to the fucking zoo.
