How to Talk Minnesotan
1Change the pronunciation of the vowel “O” in your speech. Contract the corners of your mouth to form a round shape with your mouth before phrases like “Oh dear” or “Minnes-ohhh-ta” and extend the emphasis on this vowel.
- This is a similarity to Canadian accents in some areas.
- Practice by saying the word “Sound.” While it only has one syllable and can be said quickly, a Minnesotan might say “S-ownd” or “S-ow-und” as a part of regular speech.
