Yes, I have. In Mississippi I hear it all the time. In fact, when people describe stuff as being ruined, they call it "rurnt." Yes, I know. :covri:

In the midwest, it's called a MUD ROOM.
Fixed dat for ya.

I pronounce it foy-yay, because thats what I understood is the correct pronunciation for the word foryer? maybe im wrong?

In Ohio, and parts of WV, V, and PA, you will here warsh, instead of wash. crick, instead of crEEk. drives me nuts.

That's how everyone from N'Awlins says it. Ya gonna rurn dat car if don't keep earl in it. Run it inta da terlit.
