In the Bahamas, people say persons and to my mind, it makes them sound uneducated. They 'aks' questions, they don't put ed on past tense verbs (pass tense werbs, sorry), the shop around the corner from mine sells iced cold beers [sic] and ice tea [sic], and they think using would for will makes them sound pompous when it just leaves people wondering what the heck they mean. You would do it, but... ?

They also don't understand the whole concept of a compound word, though I can't think of a concrete example at the moment (but I'm sure that some day I'm going to find light house on a sign that should read lighthouse). As a teacher and a librarian with serious OCD tendencies, this place drives me nuts!
