If you've grown up or lived in Maryland for any part of your life,
you'll find this hits rather close to home.

The Merlin Dialect is spoken by a mixed population which inhabits a triangular area on the western littoral of the
Chesapeake Bay, bounded roughly by a line commencing at Towson's Toyota, then westward to the
Frederick Mall, thence following the western border of
the cable TV franchise and the string of McDonalds' along Route 50 to the Bay.

All of these lands and the natives thereof are known as the Land of Merlin.
They divide it further into semi-tribal areas called Cannies ("COUNTIES")
(e.g.,Ballmer Canny, PeeJee Canny, Hard Canny, etc.).

The dialect area is centered on a market center called Glimburny (Glen Burnie), where the people come on
weekends to trade their goods.

Because of the numerous words and phrases common to
both Merlin Dialect and modern English, linguists have long
postulated that there is some kinship between the two.
Speakers of Merlin Dialect are all able to understand standard English from babyhood, chiefly because of their voracious appetite for television.However, they invariablyrefuse to speak standard English, even with outsiderswho obviously are not understanding a word they say.
