    We are currently having this exact debate. I say 'grass' but the wife says 'grarse' and she is absolutely determined that when our baby learns to speak, she wont be following in my reet northern footsteps.

    It seems to depend largely on where you live and what the resulting dialect of her peer group will be; this is usually far more influential than the model of either parent....though it's also typical that the mother as primary caregiver has a stronger influence here than the uselessly absent Dad.

    Still, you know, I'm rooting for your baby to follow in your reet northern footsteps, for what it's worth. :-)
