In Brooklynese there are no 'r's at the end of a word. Sometimes even in the middle of a word.
Example: The waughta in the Hudson Riva is very doity. In the maunin' you can see boids sitting on the coib eating woims. I was born and raised in Brooklyn and always considered English as a foreign language. Incidentally, the 'r' in 'foreign is actually used. Go figya.
Almost forgot, there are special occasions when 'r's can be inserted where they dont belong. as in the word turlet (toilet).
The 'g' in the suffix -ing, is also omitted.
