Most def. if I go down south to visit my mothers side of the family. My 3 half-brothers live up North in Michigan. They think I and others that live where we do have a southern accent. I don't think so but then again they (Michigan Residents) have their own accent and way of talking. I think its pretty cool how different areas so close to another can speak differently. I used to date a guy from Chicago and he pronounced words that started with a T with a D instead. It was pretty sexy actually cause he sounded kinda like someone from New York.

much like any country, england has a dozen or more accents. i've been able to tell a few apart, like recently i was able to pick out a manchester accent, and liverpool is pretty easy too. the actress that plays daphne moon does a pretty good manchester accent.

irish accents are a little more subtle, but i am able to pick out the differences between donegal/derry, dublin, and belfast now.

Sizz, I can relate to the area you are talking about. Living near and then in Chicago, I used to be able to tell if people were from Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, or Illinois.

Then I moved to Memphis and learned the nuances of Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi pronunciations.

I find it all fascinating.

I always liked to hear Richard Pryor do white people.

Just because I'll say "Dawg" in place of dog ..does that mean North Carolina has rubbed off a bit on me?? When we go back to see DH's family and then come back to Ca. my kids will ask "what part of you is southern?"
