Nagoya-ben

After I have told a least 5 of the people (Japanese) who are working on this project that I lived in Aichi Prefecture,  each has asked if I can speak Nagoya-gen and this is getting annoying.

No, I don’t and in all the years I lived in Aichi, I don’t think I heard Nagoya ben spoken anywhere except on TV dramas.  And linguistically there is more to Aichi Prefecture than Nagoya-ben.  My Japanese I was told once, is tinged with a Mikawa (the area around Toyota-shi) accent.

Think its really stupid how people automatically assume that……
