Moved comment[edit]

There was an HTML comment for "lack of progress" which I've moved here:

"is there a corresponding verb sense?"

This pronunciation is, or rather was, much more widespread than in St. Louis. For example, it can be heard about 15 minutes into w:Doctor Strangelove (in "Worshington") by Major Kong. I think "warsh" was also, back in the 1960s-1980s, a common pronunciation in the west end of Monroe County, Pennsylvania, but not the east end of the county. The pronunciation has since been very much suppressed by the homogenization of accents via mass media in the U.S. Wnt 03:21, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Common in Texas, too. Throughout the Midwest, I think. A lot of people will even spell washer (the ring that goes on a screw along with a nut) as "warsher" or "worsher". —Stephen (Talk) 05:30, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
