What do you say?
I say "Aunt"...
I've NEVER heard anyone in my area pronounce it "Ant," unless they were originally from southern CT, NY, or other random parts of the country. I don't think its a white/black thing, nor is it a north/south thing... as suggested on the show today.
I DO think that no one who is ORIGINALLY from MA/NH says "Ant"... I never even heard anyone SAY "Ant" until I went to college with people from all over the country...

So like I said, what about you?

The only person I ever heard say "Aunt" when I was growing-up was on Sanford & Son. . . Lamont liked to "talk all uppity" compared to everybody here in Southeast KY.:p

I have a friend who pronounces it "Aunt" and it always sounds stuck up to me.

If you say aunt, you are speaking English.
If you say ant, you are speaking American.

I only heard one person ever say "aunt" in real life. Otherwise, everyone I have ever encountered uses the "ant" pronunciation.

I'm a dork and am watching "I Love New York" and she just pronounced it "Aunt" so I guess that helps Anthony's theory.

Maybe black people only say "Aunt," but white people say it both ways?

I think past gens of my family used 'aunt'.

We have always used 'ant'.

Here in Kansas, most people I know say "Ant", but many of the residents of my fine state say "Mother of my girlfriend/boyfriend" instead. Both terms are pretty much interchangeable here.

I think accent and race are really the deciding factor nowadays. One of my ex girlfriends went to KState.. with the way she picked up the talk, I could see 'ant' being used out there.

Unless you are on the cast of Sanford & Son and addressing Esther, you pronounce Aunt as "Ant". Otherwise you are a "ditsoon".
