Accents are common across the country and many regions and states have their own unique accent.

Utah is no exception.

More and more Utahns are actually just transplants from other states, so the Utah accent is less prevalent than other accents, like a southern accent.

This pronunciation guide shows what a Utah accent sounds like. Whether you’ve lived in Utah since birth or just moved in and want to learn more about Utahn linguistics, this guide is intended to be a comedic, yet documented, look at the Utah accent.
