Boston accents make a greater variety of distinctions between short and long vowels before medial than many other modern American accents do: Boston accents maintain the distinctions between the vowels in marry , merry , and Mary , hurry and furry , mirror and nearer , though some of these distinctions are somewhat endangered as people under 40 in neighboring New Hampshire and Maine have lost them.
