    I’ve definitely heard this intanotion from my relatives in Western PA, and I may even do it myself from time to time (Philly suburbs, grew up in South Jersey), but it also seems to me that this intanotion is used in Amish speech, if I’m understanding you correctly. Of course, the Amish in PA are also known as Pennsylvania Dutch (one of my grandmothers came from that heritage), so is this what you’re talking about as far as the German influence?
