Mason, it seems silly, but I think, yes, it's extremely important.
Surely people (other than I) recognize how people call minivans "cars" and "toenail clippers" "clippers" and even "cell phones" "cordless phones" (though that one's a bit extreme)
Depending on your background, your aversion to certain dialects, laziness or even general ignorance, people talk differently. I feel it's important that soaps reflect that, and not everyone is a cookie-cutter character, in dialogue.
For instance, on "Passions," I HATE that all the guys call it a chaise lounge (forget hat they all pronounce it wrong (it's actually pronounced "long"); but 100 percent of the virile male population won't necessarily call it that. You'll likely get "recliner," "chair," "thing," -- all kinds of words .
What the hell are you talking about, and what does this have to do with DAYS?! :huh:
