    Many people talk in the famous Boston accent. I'm only really qualified to talk on a few intricacies of this dialect, but Adam Gaffin has compiled the excellent Wicked Good Guide to Boston English at Boston-Online.com.

    Just one more thing. Never refer to Boston as Bean Town. Just as no San Franciscan refers to their city as 'Frisco', we prefer not to refer to Boston with a nickname featuring brown ovular objects. Feel free to do as us locals do and call Boston 'The Hub of the Universe' or just simply 'The Hub'.
