French didn't really enter into it, although I'm sure some families were trilingual and included that language as well. The local language is well-suited to the local person. You may now be wondering
The local language is well-suited to the local person. You may now be wondering I never really heard the term while growing up, and neither did many of my fellow New Orleanians. Many if not most New Orleanians will use a few, some or all of the terms below, but not all New Orleanians employ the truly hardcore local pronunciations.
In a bit of double irony, not only is Tim not a local Bunny describes him as a "Yankee"but Bunny himself refuses to use the word "Yat" to describe either locals or their speech. For those of you unfamiliar with New Orleans culture, a good place to start is that there are basically only two kinds of people in New Orleans.
Another clue is that all skinny people are from Gatorland, although not all people from Gatorland are skinny.
And they often have 59 rows of teeth. The other kind of New Orleanian is Everyone Else, dose folks dat talk normal. Yat is actually much broader than this; it is a state of mind.
Unlike the Gatorlander, who is always consumed with the particulars of trying to live the modern life, the Yat is convinced that modernity is a disaster.

The syllable of major stress will be capitalized, and the syllable of secondary stress will be preceded by an apostrophe. Also remember a general rule of thumb: New Orleanians tend to stress the first syllable of most words and place names.
There are also certain standard English words other than the articles and pronouns which are pronounced in very special ways in New Orleans, and these will also be included below.
One major point of pronunciation with locals is to never pronounce words that end in "er" or "ing" as spelled.
The "ing" words are always pronounced without the "g". Award-winning filmakers Louis Alvarez and Andrew Kolker of the Center for New American Media have made an absolutely marvelous half-hour documentary film entitled "Yeah You Rite"which is a lively look at the at the unique language of New Orleans.
A very good friend of mine is a linguist, and has taught this film to his Intro to Linguistics students. If enough people ask, they might make it happen.
