WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

PhillyTawk: The Caught-Cot Distinction

This is a great video by Sean Monahan on the caught-cot distinction in Philadelphia English. If you’re someone like me who pronounces caught and cot the same way, it’s a great chance to hear what it sounds like for someone to have them as different sounds.

I also learned that not everyone who has the caught-cot distinction has the same vowel: the Great Lakes region, the South, and the Philadelphia area all apparently have different pairs of vowels here.

This probably explains why my trick for imitating a caught-cot distinction if you don’t have it but can imitate a non-rhotic dialect doesn’t always work. The trick is to pronounce “court” non-rhotically (e.g. in RP) and maybe shorten the vowel slightly, which will give you approximately /ɔ/, the sound people attribute to “caught” (courtesy of an Australian friend for whom “court” and “caught” were homonyms).

This trick is the closest I can get to making a distinction, although I still can’t always keep track of which pronunciation goes with which spelling because it’s not really phonemic for me.  Anyway, some people tend to totally get my pronunciation when I do it, it while others tell me I’m way off. I haven’t kept track of where they’ve all been from, but now I’m thinking it’s probably related to these different regions.
