Seriously.

 

A couple guys I was with were joking a bit about their differences - one from MD and the other from TX. In the Baltimore, MD region people shorten a 2 or 3 syllable word down to one syllable, while in TX they stretch a one syllable word into 2 or 3 syllables!

 

Or someone else I heard noted how in Boston people lose their "r"s ("Pa'k the ca' in the pa'king lot"), but those "r"s are recovered in the South (where everything goes down in the "warsh").

It is even different within New York.What is interesting is that I have had several people ask me what part of the East Coast I am from.I have never been to the East Coast.I do not know where I picked it up from.

I can verify the statement about vowels in Texas.

 

Accents and dialects have always fascinated me.  We got a new principal one year at school; he was from one of the northern states.  When he led the Pledge of Allegiance over the intercom, he spoke so quickly in comparison that we couldn't keep up with him.

As a Brit we have a lot of accents that probably sound similar to foreigners which is why I'm surprised that the U.S. has so many different accents. I thought that there were only about three - Southern drawl (Bible Belt, Dukes of Hazzard, JR Ewing sort of thing), New York (dis and dat), and the rest of the country.

I have heard some speak in varieties of English of those Isles, and found them incomprehensible.

The problem with "Baltimorian" is that not only the speed, but the distorted shortening of the words.
