Not compensating. Just not afraid of long words like our fellow Americans in Texas or Florida.

I always wondered why New York isn't included in New England. It certainly sounds as if it should be.

@bitterblue - York is a city in England, so it's reasonable to guess that New York might be a city in New England. But it isn't.

New York was founded by the dutch and was called New Amsterdam before England reclaimed the land and the name stuck. Not technically one of the first english colonies, but it has ties.

New York was once New Netherlands, a dutch colony, the British took it over some time later, but the original landmass that is New England has stayed the same. Ironically the word "Yankee" could be applied to both New Englanders and New Yorkers as "Yankee" came from the dutch word "Janke" but for some reason it stuck for the New Englanders.

And the only one-syllable state of the 50. It's physically as big as the other 5 put together, so no need to compensate by making it sound longer.

Question for New Englanders: Do you consider New Brunswick to be part of New England? Think about it, it’s got more trees than people, it’s named after a place in Old England, and including it would allow for New Scotland to fittingly be just North of New England.
