Re: “What's Your Dilemma?

I really like the idea this page is doing. The giant wall of text is a little intimidating. Here is a local lawyer that I like.

Re: “The Utah Theater Scene

I can't help but notice that you did not include The Midvale Main Street Theatre in your list. I've seen shows here from Hale center to Desert Star and honestly beleive that this small theatre puts out shows that not only match the quality of the "Big Houses" but in some instances they out do them.

Re: “What's Your Dilemma?

This is seriously such a great article! I am surprised at how many of these questions I have asked myself in the last few weeks. The mergency vet one was awesome! I went to anemergency vet in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago, because of this article!

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

Mou-un is spot on. . . just saying (yes, all letters are present and enunciated. . . ) And Miss Dixon is a he. . . don't get butthurt. It's satirical people. Then again, if you weren't from Utah, you'd know that. . .

I find j. sperry guilty of assault by thesaurus and intend to throw the dictionary at him. He is hereby sentenced to three consecutive lifetimes of virginity without possibility of parole. May Elohim have mercy on his soul. . .

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

Beyond insulting. Ostensibly, this author intends to convey the comedic idiosyncrasies of Utah's provincial vernacular in satirical prose, yet her bludgeoning ineptness illustrates her own inadequacies with English grammar, diction, elocution, and especially pronunciation. Colloquially, this fallacious pattern of behavior is referred to as 'projection' because the initiators of such behavior feel shame for exhibiting a particular characteristic, often denying its existence within themselves, and then castigates others--through ridicule or derision--for perceived manifestations of said trait.

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

Fun. I know people that kinda speak like that. Haha. Hope the next article is on people from Missour-ah who like to "worsh" their clothes and stuff. :)

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

My grandmother was from Beaver, and this is actually kind of sentimental for me. I can hear the way she used to speak. It definitely is more common in large concentrations of Mormons, only because that is where you get a ton of native Utahns, right?

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

If this article is posted for fun and intended to be a humor piece, then fine. But if it's intended to be serious then the author is misrepresenting facts and it is a misrepresentation of the culture in Utah.

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

How about adding T's where there aren't any. For example, "Sister Wiltson" for Wilson. Oltson for Olson, etc. There is also poym for poem. Dill for deal.

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

It's not really a Mormon language. It's a Utah language, as the subtitle but not the text states. Although, I was born and raised in Utah, and I've never heard the language propagated by this article.

Re: “Speakin' Yer Mormon

My favorite is the split and pause in two-syllable words when the second syllable begins with a 't. " Thus "Sister Christiansen" is pronunced "Siss [brief pause] ter Chriss [brief pause] tchsen. " You also swallow the "tia" in Christiansen, and it becomes "tchsen. "
