I've always been fascinated in accents since I was young. We had our 'Hoi Toide' accent, and most visitors from inland had a 'Tobacco Farmer' accent. Even a 4 year old could notice the difference. Those folks from inland would get funny looks from us with a 'normal' accent (still laughing at considering our accent normal, we sound different from most of the rest of the South, and are often asked what part of 'Up North' we're from by other Southerners).Pat/Rick said:It would be interesting to find out just how many dialects there really are in the USA. Not just the general area types, but those including local.
