DreamSnipers: Western, lived in the West all my life. The rest of Y'all sound weird.
filter: What I find amusing in general about American 'dialects' is how judgmental people get.
raerae1980: FTA: Pennsylvania is the most linguistically complex state in the country.WHO HOO!!! From Pittsburgh and this makes me proud. Had a linguistic professor once pinpoint my origins from one sentence: The rose bush needs pruned./old CSS
Bonzo_1116: AirForbes1: OscarTamerz: So in all of California only Frisco has a different accent which is differentiated by whether on rhymes with Dawn or Don, which I've never heard pronounced differently.The clearest indication somebody ISN'T from San Francisco or the Bay Area is if they call it "Frisco". I've been living in the New York metropolitan area since 2008 and I refuse to call Manhattan "The City", because to me San Francisco will always be The City./csbThe best way to tell if a Californian is from northern or southern California is to ask them directions to their house.If they say something like "Take the 5 to the 110 north, then go left at the xxxx exit" they're from southern California. If they say "Take 101 north, then get on 880..." they're from the Bay Area. Our freeways down here are THE freeways.
Popcorn Johnny: This is bullshiat, in the last year, I've lived in Michigan, Illinois and Missouri and everybody talks the same.
joshiz: Cool find. Although there are even more sub-dialects. After living in Northern California there is a definite northern california dialect vs. southern california dialect although that map lumps them together.Now I live in Chicago and while the accent is very similar, I can tell if people are from Michigan right away.
