The other day I was listening to a conversation and was taken by the speech used. It got me thinking how dialect is not only inherent to where a person is from but to each person . How each person was raised, who they interacted with, what their parents and other people they were around showed them. When a person speaks they don’t think if what they are saying matches anyone else thinks or thought patterns. It is instinctually and that is what makes each and every one of us unique.
Words are powerful tools and using them makes each person who they are. People also use words based on what type of environment they are in. If you are speaking to someone in a professional capacity you wouldn’t use the same speech as you would in personal discussions. You adapt based on who you are speaking too but the underlying speech of who you are stays the same. Your cadence, word usage and what makes your speech unique to you is all part of what you do when speaking. I love having discussions with others and listening to how they speak.

You are so right about people’s speech changing/adapting based on who they are around. I noticed that all the time during my working career. Now that I’m retired, and living in a community with mostly retired people, I don’t notice this as much.
