Grew up in Eastham. I work in Orleans.

I hope the MODs don't get mad, but there's no Boston area thread as far as I could find.

Do you pronounce Eastham phonetically or does it sound like Chatham? I cannot duplicate the way my husband says his home town of Norfolk (kinda like Nor-fork, but my version always sounds like the f-bomb). I grew up in metrowest snobville, so I still don't have the accent, but my in-laws in Kingston sure do.

Cape Codders aren't afflicted with the Boston area accent. At least here on the Lower Cape. I pronounce Eastham with the H basically a soft T (East-tam). Chatham is sort of  (Chat-um).

In the United States Forum you can start a thread related to a particular area. I'm mobile right now, otherwise I'd move the Boston chatta (chatter) to a new thread.

Wicked pissa and all that.
