Gettysburg: Home of a big battle and a silent Y?
This installment of Yorkisms actually breaks the rules a little bit – we’re traveling a little bit west of the York County border!
Friend, former coworker and blog reader Beth, though, pointed out this to me, in response to my comments about how we talk in Pennsylvania:
“We natives know that the ‘y’ is silent in Gettysburg. It’s ‘Gettsburg.'”
That’s not one I’m guilty of, but I do admit I’ve heard it. Anyone from out Adams County way want to chime in on which is right?
